Portrait of Battista Sforza

Duchess of Urbino

1466: Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

During the Renaissance, patrons more often commissioned portraits as commemorations - Federico's wife, Battista died in 1472 during childbirth, and this is probably one of the many posthumous portraits done for Federico.
