Piero della Francesca Biography
born 1419 - died 1492
THOSE are indeed unfortunate who, after most arduous studies to the end that they may assist others and leave a reputation behind them, are not allowed, either through sickness or death, to complete the Piero della Francesca paintings which they have begun.
della Francesca was
accordingly sent for by Guidobaldo Feltro,
the old Duke of Urbino, 1 for whom he made
many beautiful pictures of small figures,
most of which have come to grief during the
numerous wars from which that State has
suffered. However, some of his writings on
geometry and perspective are still preserved
there, and in these Piero della Francesca proves himself not
inferior to anyone of his own day, or
perhaps of all time. All Piero della Francesca paintings give evidence of his
skill, being full of perspectives, especially a vase represented so as to show
its front and back, its sides, its bottom and its mouth.
Having finished Piero della Francesca painting at Rome, he returned to the Borgo, his mother being
dead. Inside the middle door of the Pieve
there the painter did two saints in fresco which are
considered very fine. In the convent of the
friars of St. Augustine Piero della
Francesca painted the
picture of the high altar, 6 a much-admired
work, and in fresco he made Our Lady of Mercy
in a company, or as some say aconfratern1ty.
In the palace of the Conservadori Piero
della Francesca made a
Resurrection of Christ, which is considered
to be the best of all Piero della Francesca paintings in that city.
This Piero della Francesca artwork contains stories of the cross, from the time when the sons of Adam, when burying their father, sow the seed of the tree under his tongue, to the exaltation of the cross by the Emperor Heraclius, who, carrying it on his shoulders, enters Jerusalem bare-headed and bare-footed.
The Piero della Francesca painting contains many fine ideas and praise worthy
attitudes, as, for example, the dresses of the women of the Queen of Sheba,
executed in a smooth and novel manner, many Portraits anti (hue in style and
full of life, a divinely measured row of Corinthian columns, a serf leaning on
his spade awaiting the commands of St. Helena, while the three crosses are being
dug up, all of which cannot be improved upon.
But the most remarkable indication of his resource, judgment and art is Piero della Francesca painting of an angel fore- shortened, with its head downwards, which appears suddenly by night to carry the sign of victory to Constantine, as Piero della Francesca is sleeping in a tent guarded by a chamberlain, and by some other armed men, obscured by the darkness of the night.
