Girl With Cherries (detail); attributed to Giovanni Ambrogio de Predis (circa 1455-after 1508), but possibly by Giovanni Antonio Boltraffio (1467–1516)
oil on wood, c. 1491-5

"Girl with Cherries […] shows an artist grappling with Leonardo’s ideas and technique […] The vibrant sense of life in her curls is a testament to Leonardo’s love of the movement of hair, which he saw as similar to water currents and other paradigms of motion and which he studied in many drawings."

Listen. This is just a dream. But very clever people can hear dreams — so please, just listen. I know you’re afraid. But being afraid is alright. Because didn’t anyone ever tell you? Fear is a superpower. Fear can make you faster and cleverer and stronger. And one day you’re going to come back to this barn and on that day you’re going to be very afraid indeed. But that’s okay, because if you’re very wise and very strong, fear doesn’t have to make you cruel or cowardly. Fear can make you kind.”
