Palma Vecchio: 'A Blonde Woman'

Explore the paintings

The woman seems to unveil her charms and as she does so offers us flowers - this is perhaps a poetic allusion to the goddess Flora (although Flora was also a common name for courtesans). The painting is an early and notable example of a type of painting also produced by Titian (active about 1506; died 1576).
