Portrait of Battista Sforza, 1466: Medium
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.
