Red Hair and Scarlet Caps

Another miscellany of redheads in art now courtesy of Emanuela :D

First up this beautiful image by the Italian artist Lorenzo di Credi. It's titled A Boy in a Scarlet Cap.

Next a portrait of Gian Giacomo Caprotti, the pupil of Leonardo da Vinci. Also known by the nickname SalaƬ, meaning devil.

And finally a painting by the Flemish artist Bernard van Orley (for which we can't find the name xD). The painting appears to show a red-haired Mary and child Jesus, along with several other reddish-haired children. To add to the apparent redness the baby Jesus appears to be reaching for an orange.
