La donna velataSaturday, December 09, 2017
La velata, or La donna velata ("The woman with the veil"), is one of the most famous portraits by the Italian Renaissance painter Raphael. The subject of the painting appears in another portrait, La Fornarina, and is traditionally identified as the fornarina (bakeress) Margherita Luti, Raphael's Roman mistress.
It doesn’t take much in my mind to associate two famous paintings by Raphael with my b+w portrait of Kimberly Holcomb.
