Piero della Francesca

The masterpieces reproduced, such as the Nativity from the National Gallery in London, the Brera Madonna, the Diptych of Federico da Montefeltro and Battista Sforza from the Uffizi and the Madonna di Senigallia the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche in Urbino, are indicative of a style that combines order, measure and vision according to the Italian perspective and the Flemish eye; a style capable of observing and representing the infinitely far and the infinitely near.

One distinctive feature of Piero della Francesca’s painting is that it is both popular and aristocratic. Operating in the middle of his century, in the heart of the Italian province, he was a bearer of classical values which at the same time represented the conscious adaptation of ancient sacred models to the style of the High Renaissance.
