Paris Bordone: 'Portrait of a Young Woman'

This portrait was formerly believed to be a lady of the Brignole family from Genoa. The fashionable costume suggests the dating of about 1550.

This portrait was possibly made to hang alongside a painting of a young man. This would explain the woman’s sidelong glance and the light falling from the right, which is very unusual in Bordone’s work.
