SFUMATO

SFUMATO

Sfumato is one of the four canonical painting modes of Renaissance art.

The word sfumato comes from the Italian language and is derived from fumo (smoke). “Sfumato” translated into English means soft, vague or blurred.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) became the most prominent practitioner of Sfumato – his famous painting of the Mona Lisa exhibits the technique. Leonardo da Vinci described sfumato as “without lines or borders, in the manner of smoke or beyond the focus plane.

This VENATINO SFUMATO offers a unique transparency and mildness in its veins and background, that can be only compared to an artwork created by ancient masters like Leonardo.
