Eyes Of Bindo Altoviti - Study No. 1
Painting - Acrylic On Plaster And Lime
Inspired by Raphael's Bindo Altoviti, Florence, Italy.
Bogdanoff hones in on a tight close-up of the face. Leonardesque shadows enhance the expression of the features. The intensity of the arresting eyes and strong nose, combined with Bogdanoff's approach of his fresco art style, elevates the beauty and vitality of the sitter, and heightens the suggestion of a fascinating and transient apparition.
The subject in this piece is identified as the Florentine banker Bindo Altoviti, who commissioned Raphael for his portrait, and in whose Florentine palace it remained until the beginning of the 19th century.
