Subject: Re: Fw: The original of Dorotea

A footnote to Sebastiano del Piombo's portrait of a young woman (Dorotea). It is still at the Gemaeldegalerie in Berlin, but a few years ago this one moved from the suburb of Dahlem where it was housed as long as Berlin was divided to the more central Kulturforum. Hence "Berlin-Dahlem" would have to be changed to simply "Berlin". Nabokov will have seen the painting in this collection. Its title there is "Dorothea (1512)". By the way, Sebastiano figures in Giorgio Vasari as "Sebastiano Viniziano".
