THE BATTLE OF ANGHIARI
"Addì 6 di giugno 1505, in venerdì, al toco delle 13 ore, cominciai a colorire in palazo. Nel qual punto del posare il pennello, si guastò il tenpo e ssonò a banco, richiedendo li omini a ragione. Il cartone si stracciò, l’acqua si versò, e rupesi il vaso dell’acqua che ssi portava. E subito si guastò il tenpo e piovve insino a ssera acqua grandissima. E stette il tempo come notte."
"On 6th June 1505, on Friday, at the stroke of the 13th hour I began to paint at the Palazzo. At the moment of putting down the paintbrush the weather changed for the worse, and the bell in the law-courts began to toll. The transfer sketch came loose. The water spilled as the jug that contained it broke. And suddenly the weather worsened, and the rain poured down till nightfall. And it was dark as night."
