Once Isabella purchased The Annunciation, the next challenge was to get it out of Italy at a time when Italy was not too keen on Italian paintings being bought by foreign collectors. Isabella's art dealers the Berensons settled on a daring plan involving a trunk with a false bottom, an art dealer disguised as a travelling salesman, and some dolls! Image: Piermatteo D’Amelia (about 1450 - 1508), The Annunciation, about 1487, tempera on panel. Learn more: http://bit.ly/2AeMUcn
