Let him be well versed in the poets, and not less in the orators and historians, and aolso proficient in writing verse and prose.Baldassare Castiglione, The Courtier

Renaissance Man & WomanRENAISSANCE WOMANTo master Leonardo da Vinci, the painter. Hearing that you are settled at Florence, we have begun to hope that our cherished desire to obtain a work by your hand might be at length realized. When you were in this city and drew our portrait in carbon, you promised us that you would some day paint it in colors. But because this would be almost impossible, since you are unable to come here, we beg you to keep your promise by converting our portrait into another figure, which would be still more acceptable to us that is to say, a youthful Christ of above twelve years executed with all that sweetness and charm of atmosphere which is the peculiar excellence of your art.Isabella dEste, LettersRenaissance Man & Woman#1 .
