Violante Ferroni and Contessa Costanza
*** In the Beginning ***

A great example is the oval depicting St. John healing victims of the plague painted
for the Hospital of San Giovanni di Dio in Florence by Violante Ferroni,
a woman who bent all rules at a time when large scale public commissions were reserved for men.
