Portrait of a Woman (perhaps Pellegrina Morosini Capello)
Follower of Titian

This picture was bought from the Capello family as a depiction of Pellegrina Morosini, who married Bartolommeo Capello in 1544, but no evidence for this identification has been found.

Past attributions to Pordenone, and the 16th-century Veronese school, are now dismissed in favour of an association with the work of Tintoretto and a later date (which technical analysis also suggests is likely).
