Piero della Francesca

Piero della Francesca (1415 – 1492) was a painter of the Early Renaissance. As testified by Giorgio Vasari in his Lives of the Artists, to contemporaries he was also known as a mathematician and geometer. Nowadays Piero della Francesca is chiefly appreciated for his art. His painting was characterized by its serene humanism, its use of geometric forms and perspective.

Acquired as a portrait of Isotta da Rimini by Piero della Francesca, the painting is more probably by a Florentine artist and the sitter is unknown. The profile view emphasises the woman's high forehead, a fashionable convention achieved by shaving or plucking. 1460-70
