Apologies, I missed this piece of news from September that the Allen Memorial Art Museum in Ohio has acquired Giovanna Garzoni's miniature portrait of Zaga Christ (pictured). The work was acquired from the London dealers Philip Mould & Co with funds raised by donors of the museum.

According to the museum's director Andria Derstine:

The acquisition of this important miniature expands the Allen’s ability to tell vital stories about race, gender, and cultural exchange in the early modern period. We are excited by the new connections and interpretations it makes possible.
