Though the identity of both the young woman and the patron of this commission are unknown, this mid-16th century work was undoubtedly influenced in position and color by Leonardo's Mona Lisa. The unicorn, symbol of purity in Medieval romance, is cradled by this young beauty. Raphael was a prolific painter who, despite his early death at age 37, left his artistic mark upon the world. Together with Michelangelo and da Vinci, he forms the traditional trinity of great masters of the Renaissance. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.

I am a middle-aged woman who highly enjoys historical art and records of the Renaissance. Raphael has always been my favorite artist. When I saw that this painting was on sale, who was I not to purchase it (especially for the fair price)? I immediately ordered it, eagerly checking the mailbox every now and then. The painting arrived in a large package, so I soon hung it up in my hallway. The painting is so realistic, it even seems like the original painting considering you can see every detailed stroke of oil. However, something has ben bothering me with the painting. Whenever I stroll through the hallway, the lady's eyes follow me. Every step I take! It scares me quite a lot. When I was at work, my husband gave me a call saying that the eyes were also following him and giving him an uncomfortable feeling. The same happened, when my mother visited. Although, I adore the painting. I most definitely reccommend it to die-heart artists out there.
