Duke and Duchess of Urbino Reverse: Triumphal Procession
Allegorical Triumph of Federico da Mantefeltro and Portrait of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino.
c Ca. 1465
b 47 x 66 cm
Tempera on wood.
On the front the two panels show profile portraits of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino, and his wife, Battista Sforza. The reverse shows allegorical representations of their virtues. During the 1460s the artist worked for the Duke of Urbino, for whom he executed the Flagellation of Christ and the Senigallia Madonna, the wonderful twin portrait of the Duke and his wife Battista Sforza (Florence, Uffizi), the Nativity, and above all the incomparable Pala Montefeltro, which by some critics is considered to be his best work, which epitomizes the noblest aspirations of Early Renaissance.
