The provocative character of her dress and her sly look out of the window suggest that the subject is a prostitute, but not necessarily the portrait of a specific individual. The painting is likely to date from the second or third decade of the 16th century. In the past this painting has been attributed to Pordenone. The costume is comparable to that in other Italian works of about 1515.
