Sfumato is one of the four canonical painting modes of Renaissance art.
The word sfumato comes from the Italian language and is derived from fumo (smoke). “Sfumato” translated into English means soft, vague or blurred.
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) became the most prominent practitioner of Sfumato – his famous painting of the Mona Lisa exhibits the technique. Leonardo da Vinci described sfumato as “without lines or borders, in the manner of smoke or beyond the focus plane.
This VENATINO SFUMATO offers a unique transparency and mildness in its veins and background, that can be only compared to an artwork created by ancient masters like Leonardo.
Now you can delight it with all the advantages of an AUREA STONE product and the beauty of nature.
“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art”
– Leonardo da Vinci
Zenstone’s team have travelled the world to source the right products from the ground up by understanding the gathering and composition of raw materials and observing the manufacturing and quality control processes.
So refreshing to finally find a stone company that has actual high quality stone and porcelain. Zenstone’s range made it the perfect place to suit all my design spaces inside and outside.
