The Power Of Imperfection

The Renaissance man puts himself at the center of the world and loves to be represented in all his fair power, not separated by a certain hardness.Piero della Francesca painted in the face of Federico da Montefeltro the expression of a man who knows exactly what he wants. The shapes of body do not hide the strength, nor the effects of pleasure: the man of power, fat and dumpy when is not muscular, flaunts the signs of the power he exercises. While the aesthetic theory engages with the rules of proportion and symmetry of the body, the powerful men of the time are living a violation of these laws: the male figure also lends itself to enhance the freedom of the artist of the classical canons.
