Author portraits

Author portraits are a particular and unique typology, the prerogative of the artist, who puts part of his creative process into the realization of the work.
Alessandra proposes a type of author's portrait, which provides for the addition of paper inserts which aims to better describe the subject; these inserts may include pages from novels, magazines, comics, sheet music, photographs, and handwritten letters. It is also possible to insert gold, copper and silver leaves (authentic).
> See the Tales / Skin gallery for concrete examples.

Usually the price list applied to artistic portraits refers to the artist coefficient, which is equal to 1.9. However, in order not to make costs prohibitive, the artist decided to lower the coefficient for commissioned portraits of the author, bringing it to 1.2.
Unlike classic portraits, in this case there are no price changes based on the number of subjects to be portrayed.
Author's portraits are validated with the full signature (front and back) and accompanied by the Certificate of authenticity of the work. Also included, included in the price, is the photographic set or the time-lapse video of the work in progress, to see the whole process of creating the portrait and preserve a unique and tangible memory.

* The price is calculated, in mm, as follows: (base + height) * 1.2 = cost of the portrait.

The oil portrait with paper inserts is a peculiarity of the artist, a unique style that led her to exhibit her works throughout Italy and abroad.
The inserts are, in fact, "written traces" that describe the personality and the path of the subject in the portrait; they reinforce its meaning and create a unique and totally personalized work.
Anything that is on paper can be applied as a background or an integral part of the portrait: pages of novels, magazines, comics, musical scores, handwritten letters, greeting cards.
