"The Ideal City Panel" by Unknown

Located in the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD, the “Ideal City Panel” is one of three “Ideal City” panels illustrating Renaissance architectural theory (the others are in Urbino and Berlin.) While its authorship is unknown, it was most likely inspired by Leon Battista Alberti’s “On the Art of Building.” The vast space is defined by various buildings, including a triumphal arch, an amphitheater, and a baptistry-type structure, which are framed by two block-type palaces producing an almost metaphysical setting, nearly void of human activity. Buona visione!
