Love at first sight, Portrait of a young man holding a roundel by Sandro Boticelli. Coup de foudre !

As soon as I saw that work, I fell in love with it.

Sotheby’s was announcing it would be selling that rare masterpiece. I was stunned by the grace, the elegance and the tremendous power of the composition. 

The impact on me threw me to the drawing pad and I did a sketch. Where from came the yellow ? No idea. 

And why the young man turned so feminine ?
