Insider tip

The model for La Fornarina was a baker's daughter named Margherita Luti. She was known to be Raphael's mistress and muse. On her upper arm she sports a bracelet with 'Raphael Vrbinas' written on it, the Renaissance equivalent of a high school girl wearing her boyfriend's letter jacket.
