Piero della Francesca
Piero della Francesca: Il Gondoliere
Piero della Francesca: Il Gondoliere, tempera on board / 50 x 70 cm.

In the 1450ies Piero della Francesca was travelling from Ferrara to Venice where he painted the portrait of "Gondoliere", which is still well
preserved.

The full light of the Grand Canal floods the painting with a perspective synthesis of shape and colour.

The outline is fixed in an exact space, in a quiet wholeness of vision.

The work is in an abstract atmosphere and it becomes one of the best pictures illustrating Renaissance geometry and, in particulary, Piero della Francesca’s art.
