Matteo Palmieri

by sunil on March 4, 2016

I accidentally stumbled onto this picture in my phone and realised the sort of crazy pursuits I had been up to in Florence last December. Matteo Palmieri was a pharmacist in Florence who amongst other things revolutionised the fashion in Florence (!),  but more famously commissioned Annunciation of the Virgin by Botticini at the erstwhile San Pier Maggiore. 

The altarpiece is now in the National Gallery London.
