Il Magnifico

Lorenzo dei Medici seated in a chair with a black and white cat

This painting uses a profile view of Verrocchio’s bust of Lorenzo. I decided to seat Lorenzo and keep the composition simple. The Medici palle are featured on the chair along with the fleur-de-lis symbol of Florence. I borrowed and modified a design of Jan Van Eyck’s to use on Lorenzo’s sleeve.
