The Klesch Collection is delighted to announce the publication of a new book, filled with new research on one of our paintings, Titian’s Portrait of Guidobaldo II della Rovere, Duke of Urbino, and his Son Francesco Maria II
The book discusses the double, full-length portrait, that due to thorough analysis and restoration, and an in-depth study of the sitter has now been fully attributed to Titian. In this book, Matthew Hayes and Ian Kennedy elaborate on the technique, date, restoration and authorship of the painting, whilst Ian Verstegen explores Guidobaldo’s central position in Italian politics. Anne-Marie Eze gives a comprehensive account of the painting’s provenance, presenting new documentary evidence on the painting’s near 500-year history.
Titian, the Della Rovere Dynasty, & His Portrait of Guidobaldo II and his Son is available for purchase here.
