Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART NEWS -

The Ad­vanc­ing Women Artists Foun­da­tion 'Adopt an Apos­tle' pro­gramme is rais­ing funds to re­store a seven me­tre long paint­ing of The Last Sup­per by Plau­tilla Nelli (1524-1588). Their ini­tia­tive has been to en­cour­age art lovers to adopt an Apos­tle, and there are just three left: Thomas, Simon and Philip. Florence Mayor Dario Nardella said: "Plau­tilla Nelli was the most im­por­tant fe­male painter of the Floren­tine Re­nais­sance and her city will pay her homage by ex­hibit­ing this work in the Santa Maria Novella Mu­seum Com­plex in Oc­to­ber 2019."
