I like ‘Google Doodles‘. Always have. I find them educational & this one sure was. Though I have read a ton on the Italian Renaissance I had, alas, never come across this extraordinary lady before. So, it was good to read about her.

I am used to Google Doodle’s being published to commemorate someone’s birthday or death. So, when I first looked her up on Wikipedia (above) I could not work out why the Doodle was published today, April 17. I had to do some more reading.

Yes, I would have found it, quicker, IF I had first gone to the ‘Doodle Archive‘, but I didn’t.

I was wondering, were YOU curious?

Well, does not matter. Now you know. SMILE.
