Mantello close up
- A week or so I posted about a painting by Fra Carnevale where a lady
had tucked her mantello into the neckline of her gown to leave her
I've been under the weather for a bit, so it took a while for me to
dig out the book and get a scan of the painting in question. You can
find in in the Files section of the group under the title:
This close up scan was taken from Fashion by Mila Contini published by
Crescent Books, New York 1965.
Like many survey books, it has many flaws, but it also has interesting
Italian items you don't see in most books.
