Costanza Caetani
Style of Domenico Ghirlandaio

The sitter, identified in the inscription as a member of the Medici family, was born in about 1469 and by 1489 had married a prominent Florentine citizen. The flowers and jewels (a pendant and three finger rings on a bolster) may well refer to her betrothal.

The painting has in the past been attributed to the young Fra Bartolommeo, when he was much influenced by Domenico Ghirlandaio.
