A very unusual painting shared with me via twitter:

Posthumous portrait of 6mo Sinbaldo Gaddi post 1564 with black page
& a dog ptd by Maso da Sa Friano. Odd choice in many ways.

[From] a private collection currently on view at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence for a mannerism show.

It’s not that posthumous (after they’ve died) portraits of children were a completely anomaly, but usually the children depicted are older. This is definitely a baby. Also, the pose, the staging, the drapery, and the inclusion of another person (notice he’s wearing mourning clothes) are all odd for this genre.

The Inquisitor’s Tale: Or, The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog

1242. On a dark night, travelers from across France cross paths at an
inn and begin to tell stories of three children. Their adventures take
them on a chase through France: they are taken captive by knights, sit
alongside a king, and save the land from a farting dragon. On the run to
escape prejudice and persecution and save precious and holy texts from
being burned, their quest drives them forward to a final showdown at
Mont Saint-Michel, where all will come to question if these children can
perform the miracles of saints.
 
Join William, an oblate on a
mission from his monastery; Jacob, a Jewish boy who has fled his burning
village; and Jeanne, a peasant girl who hides her prophetic visions.
They are accompanied by Jeanne’s loyal greyhound, Gwenforte …
recently brought back from the dead. Told in multiple voices, in a style
reminiscent of The Canterbury Tales, our narrator collects their stories and the saga of these three unlikely allies begins to come together.
