Description

The portrait depicts Carlo Emanuele I, Duke of Savoy from 1580 to 1630, wearing one of his precious armor and the collar of the Annunciation. As stated in the signature on the bottom left, it is the work of one of the rare and most acclaimed painters of the seventeenth century, the Ascoli Giovanna Garzoni (1600-1670). Called to Turin by Cristina of France, he worked there from 1632 to 1637. At Palazzo Reale the parchment with Carlo Emanuele I is a pendant to the one depicting the father Emanuele Filiberto, while the Uffizi houses the portraits of his wife Caterina Micaela and his son Vittorio Amedeo I. The painting, with its refined design and pictorial technique, stands out for its remarkable naturalism despite being made a few years after the death of the effected duke. The painter must have taken one or more portraits previously made by other authors, such as Giovanni Caracca, reaching however a decidedly higher result, which justifies the success achieved in Florence and Rome after her stay in Turin.
