Research is an essential part of AWA's restoration projects. Here's additional proof. AWA's Palazzo Vecchio painting is being compared to its twin at the Ente Cassa di Risparmio in Florence's via Bufalini. Project restorer Rossella Lari and curator Serena Pini placed a traced transparency drawn from the 1745 portrait over the figure of the Sage Princess in the Ente Cassa's collection and the two renditions correspond almost perfectly, indicating they were likely executed from the same cartoon, and could have been painted for two villas belonging to the Medici clan. It is always interesting to find links between public and private collections open which shine a light on the mobility of art in history. It's never static!
