COPPIA DI ALBARELLI

COPPIA DI ALBARELLI

Circa 1480-1500 ~ Likely Montelupo ~ The Metropolitan Museum of Art ~ This is an early example of the Belle donne ("beautiful women") ceramics popular throughout the Renaissance. They were probably made as amorous gifts, although it is difficult to know if they are really portraits of individuals. Because of the imagery of this bowl it may refer to Lucrezia de’Medici, the daughter of Lorenzo the Magnificent (whose birthtray is displayed in this gallery), born in 1470.
