Born in Milan and based in Florence, Pietro Annigoni spent his artistic career reviving the Renaissance. With the same drama and depth as the Old Masters before him, Annigoni was esteemed most for his portraits, the subjects of which include Queen Elizabeth II, the Pope, British and American political leaders and members of European, Middle-Eastern and Indian aristocracy.

In ‘Roman Girl’, Annigoni pictures a youth. Her striking features and clothing recall ancient Roman busts and Pompeian frescoes, as well as Annigoni’s talent for likeness. Despite its historical lineage however, something remains vital about ‘Roman Girl’. There is a wildness about her - eyes sparkling, hair coiled and lips pursed - that will always transfix viewers no matter the era.

The subject of a feature documentary, Annigoni is represented in the British Royal Collection, Vatican Museums, Metropolitan Museum in New York, Uffizi Gallery and Pitti Palace in Florence. For admirers of the Renaissance and Italian art, this work promises to enthral.
