Portrait of a Lady

The unidentified richly dressed sitter is depicted behind a parapet. Her clothes of the subject are thought to date from the period around 1516-17. Attributions to Palma Vecchio and Licinio have been suggested, but the condition of the picture precludes a firm attribution.

The woman's costume suggests the approximate dating for this painting.
