RESERVED - Portrait Of Beatrice D’Este [After Leonardo Da Vinci]

DESCRIPTION

A truly beautiful early 20th-century chromolithograph after a tempera on panel portrait by Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519). The original work is currently on display in the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana Museum of Milan and dates to between 1485 and 1500.

Beatrice d'Este was the Duchess of Bari/Milan and was believed to be one of the most attractive princesses of the Renaissance. Her impeccable style won her many admirers throughout Italy and France, and she became a trendsetter of the highest order.

In this exquisite portrait, Leonardo has masterfully depicted the fine details of her sumptuous jewellery, royal dress and ornate headgear. And once again, he’s captured the imagination with another enigmatic smile…

The chromolithograph is housed in an elegant decorative frame that complements the portrait perfectly. A label on the back refers to the Parisian frame-maker H Canville of 88 Avenue de Villiers, so perhaps the print also originated in the French capital.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
