File:Ridolfo Ghirlandaio Columbus.jpg


Title Christopher Columbus
Français : Cette illustration peut être considérée comme étant du domaine public. Ce portrait a été exécuté dans la première moitié du XVIème siècle, après la mort de Colomb. Il est exposé, dans une vitrine du Musée de la mer et de la navigation de Gênes, "Il Padiglione del Mare e della Navigazione".

L'auteur, Ridolfo Ghirlandaio, était le fils de Domenico Ghirlandaio. Il est aussi connu sous le nom de Ridolfo Bigordi. Ce peintre, lui non plus, n'a jamais résidé en Espagne. Il est peu probable qu'il ait rencontré l'Amiral.

The artist, Ridolfo Ghirlandaio, was the son of Domenico Ghirlandaio. He is also known as Ridolfo Bigordi. Ghirlandaio never lived in Spain and it is unlikely that he ever met with the Admiral.
