Hi Susan,

    The Columbus Museum of Art owns an orignal painting by Artemisia
Gentileschi--David and Bethsheba(sp?). I believe it is now on loan to the
major exhibit at the Met on Artemisia and her dad Orozio. There is an
article about them in the current issue of Smithsonian Magazine, which
mentions the Vreeland book. Summer reading indeed for me. Thanks for the
