The City of Perpetual Reflection

The Ideal City was a concept that inspired many Renaissance artists and architects, among them Luciano Laurano,

whose painting by the same name in Urbino was the starting point for this study in Renaissance clarity and sense

of perspective. The sculpture is an ensemble of four buildings of cherry and English maple set on a plaza of etched mirror

against a plain mirror backdrop. The dimensions are 11"h -35"w - 23"d. For an image of the painting, click on THE IDEAL CITY.
