Portrait of Princess, c-print 57 x 68,5 cm 2008


Portrait of Princess (2007) is a photograph inspired by Pisanello's profile portrait of Ginevra d'Este (Portrait of Princess). D'Este was killed by her husband over an alleged infidelity. The presence of certain symbols in the painting leads to the conclusion that it was done after her death. In the photograph the woman has turned her head slightly to gaze with one eye at the viewer, and at the same time she is reaching out, as if trying to feel the invisible border between her world and ours.
