uffizi room 7 del primo rinascimento

Some of the most relevant works of the Italian Renaissance are to be found in this room, an expression of the culture of Humanism, the search for a space defined through perspective and the rediscovery of the distant past.

There is evidence of the first Florentine Renaissance, such as the Madonna and Child with St. Anne, by Masaccio and Masolino, and the Madonna and Child, by the same Masaccio.

In the paired portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Urbino, by Piero della Francesca, one can see the commemoration of the man through his virtues.

The study of perspective by 15th century painters is exemplified by the very famous Battle of San Romano, by Paolo Uccello, part of a triptych commissioned for Cosimo I, which is now divided among the Uffizi, the Louvre and the National Gallery.

Also exhibited here is the Santa Lucia de' Magnoli Altarpiece, in which Domenico Veneziano forsakes the gold background of the medieval tradition and envelops the figures in a regal light.
