"The Flagellation"by Piero della Francesca

Painted in the middle of the 15th century and located in the Ducal Palace in Urbino, “The Flagellation” is one of the most famous and mysterious paintings of the Renaissance. Much has been written about the enigmatic meaning of the work, including it being a metaphor for the fall of Constantinople. Piero’s rigorous perspective, ambiguous characters, and odd juxtapositions of figures has baffled art historians for centuries. Kenneth Clark described Della Francesca’s painting as “the greatest small painting in the world.” Buona visione!
