"Pianga Cortona omai, vestasi oscura, Che estinti son del Signorello i lumi; Et, tu, Pittura, fa de gli occhi fuimi, Che resti senza lui debile e scura."  
Epitaph composed at the time of his death "Il Cortonese Luca d'ingegno E spirito pellegrino."
Rime Di Giovanni Santi
The references to Vasari, and Crowe and Cavalcaselle, are invariably to the latest editions, both in Italian: "Opere di Giorgio Vasari" (Firenze, G. C. Sansoni, 1879); "Cavalcaselle e Crowe" (Le Monnier, 1898).
The author desires to express her gratitude to Mr Bernhard Berensen, author of "Lorenzo Lotto," etc., for much help in her work.
