Take a look at Jan Gossaert's "Portrait of a Merchant." This work shows a merchant seated in a cramped yet cozy space, surrounded by the tools of his trade. Scattered over the table are his frequently used items: a talc shaker to dry ink, an ink pot, a pair of scales for testing the weight—and the quality—of coins, and a metal receptacle for sealing wax, quill pens, and paper. Attached to the wall are balls of twine and batches of papers labeled "miscellaneous letters" and "miscellaneous drafts." What more do you notice? Jan Gossaert, "Portrait of a Merchant," c. 1530, oil on panel, National Gallery of Art, Washington, Ailsa Mellon Bruce Fund

King of England Richard III died #onthisday in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth in Leicestershire. The divisive king adopted the boar as his symbol in 1472, and court records show that thousands of small boar-shaped badges were produced for his coronation in 1483. Most were made of cheap bronze or pewter, but this one is silver and was once gilded. It was found in Chiddingly in the south of England, and may have belonged to a nobleman who supported the king. http://ow.ly/Rc4b30eAq52
