Sir Anthony Van Dyck, portrait of Sofonisba Anguissola. During his stay in Sicily...he sketched Sofonisba who was now very aged, sitting in a chair...He writes in Italian 'portrait o the painter Signora Sofonisba, done from life in Palermo in the year 1624, on 12 July: her age being 96 years, still with her memory and brain most quick, and most kind, and although she has lost her sight because of her old age...and by placing her nose close to the picture, she could make out a little of it'.
