Restoration of  the painting Lamentation with Saints, hosted at the San Marco Museum in Florence, showcases the life and works of the Renaissance city’s first recognized woman artist, Suor Plautilla Nelli, a Dominican nun-painter celebrated in Giorgio Vasari’s Lives. As her masterwork’s colors come forth following restoration, so too, does the personality and vocation of this pioneering woman, whose works—inspired by Andrea del Sarto and Fra’ Bartolomeo—bear witness to Florence’s many spiritual legacies.
