Rosalba Carriera Pastel Portrait in Uffizi Gallery, Florence

During my recent visit to famous Uffizi gallery in Florence, Italy, among the old masters like Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raffaello, Tiziano, Botticelli, I found one pastel jewel – the Rosalba Carriera pastel portrait of “Felicita Sartori”. It is in a very good shape and the colors are still brilliant, unlike many other oil and tempera works in the museum. Next to that painting  one can find couple of oil paintings by the pastel masters that were already presented on this blog – Jean-Etienne Liotard and Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin.

  1. Hi Casey, Thanks for the comment. The Uffizi is great but I must admit the Tuscany hills and views were the best part of my trip. I warmly recommend it and I’m sure you’d find a plenty of inspiration for your great works!

  2. Hehe, Since I’m related to a lot of Sarotri’s from Italy, You know I cant Help but wonder If the model in this painting is in our Family tree. Actually have traced it back that far but have found no Felicita as yet but still looking. Anyways remarkable portrait. thanks for sharing it here.
