Caption: The infant's choice, Whole folio An emblematical miniature showing that the lover's choice should be guided by spontaneous liking, rather than by a desire for wealth. The scene shows a child seated on a table, between two dishes; one is full of gold coins, and the other cherries. He chooses the cherries without hesitation, preferring the dish which appeals to his natural taste. The scene illustrates a love poem dedicated by Pierre Sala to Marguerite Builloud Image taken from Love Poems. Originally published in France; early 16th century.
