Portrait of a Woman

The sitter has not been identified but she wears a headdress of a type found in Southern Germany in the 16th century.

It has been suggested that there is a resemblance between the style of this portrait and the work of Hans Muelich (or Mielich 1517 - 1573). Its poor condition makes a more precise attribution difficult.
