Portrait of Silvana Cenni (1922). Felice Casorati (Italian, 1883–1963). Tempera on canvas.
This symmetrical composition of a seated woman in a white dress is perhaps the best-known of the artist’s works. In it, the careful rendering of volumes results paradoxically in a sense of unreality; this is characteristic of Casorati’s art and it connects him to the metaphysical painters.
