A Photographer's Lightbox

School of Titian

Researching an idea on how to make this young lady’s Senior Portrait,  I found a 1546 painting attributed to the School of Titian.  The portrait of Vittoria Farnese of Rome, later the Duches of Urbino, depicts a Roman lady with the golden veil and black dress of nobility.   As in the mid 1500’s, the only light used to create this portrait came from a window.  A photograph of the painting, currently in the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest, is here.
