  1. Actually the earliest known painting of Sandro Botticelli is not Fortitude, but Virgin and Child supported by an Angel (1465-67, Fesch Museum, Ajaccio, Corsica): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_works_by_Sandro_Botticelli

    1. Wikipedia also says that Fortitude is the first recorded work by Botticelli.
