CHARLES P. REAY: Frederigo da Montefeltro and Battista Sforza

Bruno David is pleased to present “Frederigo da Montefeltro and Battista Sforza””, a sculpture installation by Saint Louis based multi-disciplinary artist Charles P. Reay. This will be Reay’s fourth exhibition with the gallery, and will be on view 24/7 at 7513 Forsyth Blvd., Saint Louis (Downtown Clayton), MO.

Charles P. Reay created a sculpture from the most celebrated paintings of the Italian Renaissance by Piero della Francesca, the Duke of Urbino, Federico da Montefeltro and his wife Battista Sforza (1473-1475 c.) which is in the permanent collection of the Uffizi Galleries, Florence, Italy. In the tradition of the fourteenth century, inspired by the design of ancient coins, the two figures in the paintings, are shown in profile, an angle that ensured a good likeness and a faithful representation of facial details without allowing their sentiments to show through: indeed, the Duke and Duchess of Urbino appear unaffected by turmoil and emotions. Piero della Francesca marries the strict approach to perspective learned during his Florentine education with the lenticular representation more characteristic of Flemish painting, achieving extraordinary results and unmatched originality.
