You've only a few days left to visit what looks to be a fascinating exhibition in Washington, 'Michel Sittow: Estonian Painter at the Courts of Renaissance Europe' (closes May 13th). Above is a talk by the National Gallery of Art's curator, John Hand, about Sittow's life. He tells us that only 13 works by Sittow are now considered autograph in the latest book on Sittow. Although there must be more out there somewhere; can an artist become as accomplished as Sittow with so little practice?

Update - thanks to those readers who have pointed out that the show will soon be Estonia. More here
