Florence: an open air museum

Florence, the jewel in the crown of Tuscany, Italy.  The iconic skyline, dominated by the Duomo, is immediately recognisable.  The Appennine Mountains rise up behind it and the River Arno runs through it, 

It was the birthplace of the Renaissance and any artist working there is following in the footsteps of Michelangelo, Leonardo and Dante to name but three.  One such artist is Vittoria Scaffidi who can be found outside the walls of the Pitti Palace selling her paintings.  Here she is: 

And here is one of her paintings:

She has added a panel to her watercolour to,show Florence in the rain with a number of umbrellas flying around.  

It needs a new mount but apart from that the colours are still very vibrant and I think anyone who knows Florence would like it.  I wonder what it cost and why it has been cast aside.
