Italian Renaissance painting is the painting of the period beginning in the late 13th century and flourishing from the early 15th to late 16th centuries, occurring in the Italian peninsula, which was at that time divided into many political areas. The painters of Renaissance Italy, although often attached to particular courts and with loyalties to particular towns, nonetheless wandered the length and breadth of Italy, often occupying a diplomatic status and disseminating artistic and philosophical ideas.

Edit: Inspired by:
“In Dolarhyde’s mind, Lecter’s likeness should be the dark portrait of a Renaissance prince.”
–Red Dragon, page 120 (Thomas Harris)


Apart from what I said before I think he won’t be the last painting I make. If you have suggestions just send me a message!
