Duke and Duchess of Urbino
This piece is a reproduction of Piero della Francesca’s “Duke and Duchess of Urbino.” By appropriating Piero’s 15th century portraits, I question power struggles and gender roles throughout western history.
Surrounding the Duke are the photos of men of power and importance; men who have the ability to create change with their titles. However, the imagery enveloping the Duchess reveales feminine power disguised in idealized sensuality. The question is, who really has control here?
