Dear Ms. Beltrami Thanks so much for the PR and announcement of our show which opened with a BANG! But the picture you show below is of a Baroque Spanish queen. Can you change for portrait of one of our queens? See attached (some sections in English). Let me know if you need an image. Best wishes, Annemarie Jordan and Dagmar Eichbeger
Dear Annemarie and Dagmar,
Thank you for your comment. The exhibition seems very interesting.
With the Coello I was trying to underscore the relevance of this exhibition to our visitors, who are mostly interested in Spanish art. But I take your point and have changed the image now. I could not see the attachment you mention so I used the ivory fan on the exhibition’s website. I hope that works!
