INDEX OF AUTHORS

their women with flaxen and light-golden hair, which often became brown 

with the artists of the Renaissance period. Firenzuola, in his admirable 

dialogue on feminine beauty, says that a woman's hair should be like gold 

or honey or the rays of the sun. Luigini also, in his _Libro della bella 

Donna_, says that hair must be golden. So also thought Petrarch and 

Ariosto. There is, however, no corresponding predilection among these 

writers for blue eyes. Firenzuola said that the eyes must be dark, though 

not black. Luigini said that they must be bright and black. Niphus had 

previously said that the eyes should be "black like those of Venus" and 

the skin ivory, even a little brown. He mentions that Avicenna had praised 

the mixed, or gray eye.
