Paolo Uccello, about 1397 - 1475, The Battle of San Romano about 1438-40 © The National Gallery, London
This brilliantly structured and colourful painting depicts part of the battle of San Romano that was fought between Florence and Siena in 1432. The central figure is Niccolò da Mauruzi da Tolentino on his white charger, the leader of the victorious Florentine forces, who is identifiable by the motif of 'Knot of Solomon' on his banner.
This panel is one of a set of three of the same battle, the other two are in the Louvre, Paris, and the Uffizi, Florence. This painting and its two companion panels were commissioned by the Bartolini Salimbeni family in Florence sometime between 1435 and 1460: only the Uffizi panel is signed. Lorenzo de' Medici so coveted them that he had them forcibly removed to the Medici palace.
A historically fascinating painting and a beautiful colour blend lends this to be one of our favourite pocket squares in our National Gallery Collection. Subtle yet versatile, it works in a number of folds and across a variety of colour schemes.
