Simonetta by StinaWiik Simonetta by StinaWiik
The beautiful Simonetta Vespucci, one of the most beautiful ladies of the era (in the mid 15th century). She was nominated as "The Queen of Beauty". After meeting her, the great painter Botticelli painted no one else for the rest of his life. And many others has also painted and illustrated her thru the years.
Madonna of the Magnificat by Botticelli

I've always loved his style, so I painted this as an exercise. :painter:
You find some closeups here.
Made in Painter.

This piece is wonderful, what a beautiful way to homage both Botticelli and La Bella Simonetta, I did some work on Venus on my foundation last year, my inspiration being the story of Botticelli's unrequited love for Simonetta. Well done, its really really lovely :D x

Great work, but I must say, that the face on original painting looks better for me. (ofcourse not in that poor-qualify picture that you have linked)

Stunning! I really adore the way you managed to combine that kind of... older look with a more modern one. They're blended together just right, I think!

fantastic. Your portrait arrested me. A modern Virgin? She contemplates the viewer rather than than the christ child though. Even his venus didnt stare from the canvas. She has a halo. What does this mean?

An amazing adaptation of Medieval style into the modern context. The modern clothes combined with medieval sensibilities is simply classica and still very expressive. I "think" and I am guessing here... that with a more medieval color scheme would have made it a more interesting blend. I would like a gold leaf styled background with the leaves a richer green and the clothes more like a denim with some lines of gold like the stiching in jeans. I do think this piece is really a wonderful idea however, I think it'll be a fav for me.
