Francesco Salviati del Rossi 1510-1563 ITAL. Portrait of a Lady, s, XVII. Sus primeras obras fueron influenciadas por Miguel Angel y Andrea del Sarto, pintó frescos y retratos donde subdivide las escenas con amplias formas arquitectónicas, al modo rafaelesco, con la precisión del dibujo típico florentino, torsiones de cuerpos, paños flotantes propios del clasicismo. Tendió a hacer pinturas elegantes pero robustas típicas del manierismo.

Last week I showed you a 1920s dress in aqua and gold lace with velvet poppies trim, and you DID NOT LIKE IT. Ok, a rare few of you loved it, but most of you didn’t: you had trouble envisioning it as it would have been worn in the ’20s (yes, it would have had a slip, almost certainly in a slightly paler shade of aqua), you found the poppies too heavy and clashing, and didn’t like the transition from lace to satin. For general dislike, the dress came in at an extremely disappointing 4.7 out…
