This charming painting by Sophonisba Anguissola of 1555 is of three sisters playing chess.

It could also be seen as a study of four ages of woman.

David guarding his flocks, a 15th century Siennese painting in a wonderful 16 sided frame. It's in Birmingham City Art Gallery. The beautiful city of Jerusalem (really Sienna) is in the background and David chats with a cherub.
