Attributed to Giovanni Ambrogio de Predis: 'Profile Portrait of a Lady'

Explore the paintings

In 1483 Ambrogio de Predis (or Preda), with his brother Evangelista, was contracted in Milan to assist Leonardo da Vinci in painting and gilding the altarpiece which was to incorporate 'The Virgin of the Rocks'.

It is likely that this portrait is also a Milanese work. The Moor's head and the letters 'L' and 'O' which ornament the buckle of the belt may allude to Lodovico il Moro, Duke of Milan.
