More about this artwork
The rather severe, unapproachable aura of this image of the artist’s lover in Rome, Anna Risi (‘Nanna’), recalls the Renaissance and Mannerist portraits that Feuerbach saw in Florence: ‘I set foot in the Tribuna [in the Uffizi] in the late afternoon. An emotion overcame me for which the Bible uses the word ”revelation”. The past was obliterated, the French moderns became daubers and my future path lay clear and bright before me.’
