Portrait of a Lady

This work is traditionally regarded as Florentine, but possibly of North Italian origin. It has been reduced in size. The identity of the sitter is not known, but the costume suggests a date of about 1540. It was formerly attributed to Bronzino and then to Cristofano Allori (1577 - 1621).
