DA2863 28X40 Portrait Of Giovanna Albizzi
Available at Appliances Connection.
Noted for her heavenly beauty shown in profile to signify virtue, Giovanna died in childbirth, the venerated young bride of an influential Florentine family with links to the Medicis. Her husband's love is reflected in the inscription found on the cartouche in the background of the portrait: "If only art could reproduce the character and spirit! In all the world a more beautiful painting will not be found." Ghirlandaio, a celebrated portraitist, had several prominent patrons and himself was one of Michelangelo's earliest teachers. 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. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones. Large: 28"Wx40"H.
