Estante com Livros

By Giuseppe Maria Crespi

This week, for Sunday, March 15th, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:




This week, we celebrate the birthday of Italian Baroque painter Giuseppe Maria Crespi, who was born on March 14, 1665. Giuseppe Maria Crespi was known as Lo Sphanuolo.

To honor this artist, SIMPLY SNICKERS offers samples of his artwork to accompany this week’s prompt.
