Art historians are almost sure that the brush of Piero della Francesca belong, in addition to all known works, several more paintings. In particular, he is credited with several portraits and images of Madonna and Child, as well as “Kind of an ideal city”. The latter work is of particular interest to researchers.
Now “View of an ideal city” is kept in the National Gallery of Delle Marche in Urbino. To say that this painting belongs to the brush of Piero della Francesca, allow her color and mathematical veri fi cation. For the first time, “The Kind of an Ideal City” was attributed by Piero della Francesca to the British art critic Kenneth Clark in his monograph on the master’s work. Perhaps the truth is, the author of this work was Luciano Laurana, the architect who owns the project of the ducal palace in Urbino.
