A correspondent visiting Rome writes:
We went to the Vatican Museums today. The highlight for me was the Pinoteca’s collection of 14th and 15th century paintings. Overwhelming. Such wonders.LA replies:
The early Renaissance (in Florence, the 14th century and the first half of the fifteenth) is in some ways more impressive and meaningful than the high Renaissance.
