In January, we challenged artists to create their own interpretation of an 18th-century portrait of Maria Christina, Duchess of Teschen (1742–1798). The winning entry was submitted by Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco (b.1967), a figurative painter from Genova, Italy.

Here we see the Duchess with a contemporary twist, full of expression, bold brushwork and a splash of vibrant pink. The history remains - yet the style is electrifying.

Ilaria trained as an illustrator in Italy and currently lives in London. Her work has been exhibited widely and she was selected for the BP Portrait Award, the Threadneedle Prize, The Lynn Painters-Stainers Prize, The Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize, The Royal Society of Portrait Painters Exhibition and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

She’s currently represented at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles and the British Library.

The portrait is signed in the lower left and housed within a painted vintage frame.

Medium: Oil on panel
Overall size: 16” x 18½” / 41cm x 47cm
Year of creation: 2021
Condition: New. Frame with a minor scuff in the lower right.
