Portrait of Battista Sforza, 1466: Canvas Replica Painting: Grande
By artist Piero della Francesca (1416-1492), in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence
This memorial portrait of the Duchess of Urbino, who died in childbirth, also paints a rich tale of her husband, Frederico da Montefeitro. Shown against a backdrop that allegorically triumphs the accomplishments of the Urbino family, the Duchess is splendidly attired in the jewels, pearls and rich fabrics that signify her station. The work of della Francesca is characterized by its serene humanism, geometric form and perspective. The artist also painted a companion piece of Battista's husband, then Duke of Urbino and the most successful condottieri of the Italian 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. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.

Piero Della Francesca (1416-1492)

Piero Della Francesca painted religious works that were simply serene and clear, as well as uniquely geometric in relation to perspective and foreshortening. Della Francesca was an Italian painter during the Italian Renaissance and additionally made advances in the fields of mathematics and geometry.

Della Fransesca was blessed with a privileged childhood and he was able to study with painters in and around Florence, where he could view the sculptures and paintings of the great masters, such as Donatello and Fra Angelico. Della Fransesca was especially talented in perspective; his paintings are noted for the care he took in painting backgrounds for his figures. Della Francesca's paintings consistently display his interest in the theoretical study of perspective and a contemplative approach to painting. After a solid career in painting that produced lasting images such as View of an Ideal City, Della Francesca moved to innovative writing, publishing books on the subjects of solid geometry and perspective.
