Portrait of a Young Boy holding a Child's Drawing, ca. 1515
Giovanni Francesco Caroto (Italian, ca.1480-1555

This is one of those paintings I wish I could view in person. Even on the screen, I spent minutes trying to divine the expression on this child's face and imagining the sounds emanating from the subject. Giggles? Sighs? Italian?
