Francesco de' Rossi (Il Salviati), The Three Fates


Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence

Date: 1550
Technique: Oil on wood, 61 x 83 cm

Salviati's draftsmanship is most evident in the articulation of the hands of the Fates, and the texture of the wool on their spindle. The masklike face in the background relates the figures to their classical sources.
