Portrait of a Lady

It has been suggested at different times that the sitter is the Duchesse D'Angoulême, or Françoise d'Orléans, Princesse de Condé. Neither of these identifications is convincing.

The picture is dated by the costume of the sitter, which is thought to be of the early or mid-1570s.
