There is this tiny Auction House not far from my place. I like to go there and have a look when they exhibit their pieces prior to an auction. I always find some little treasures buried among old furs and very expensive antique paintings.
Last time I went there I could not believe my eyes. The Arlecchino grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let it go. I HAD to try and place a bid, although I didn’t really hope I would be able to get it. I did instead!
As it happens, I recently wrote an article on the Arlecchini from Montelupo and their role in the history of Tuscan pottery. It brought me good luck.
I will think very carefully about my next subject for an article. Who knows what might happen…
