16th Century Canvas

Today I was able to get up close and personal to a 16th century canvas. I've never looked at an oil portrait so closely. The depth was spectacular. The individual that was painted had the most beautiful eyes. On close examination, you could tell that the hands were done by two different people. The right one was a good size for the body and face, the left was deformed and smaller. The feet were also too small.  It's covered with a lot of dirt and grime, but at one time was a beautiful piece of work. I'll dream about those eyes tonight.
