Portrait of a woman
Pippi Giulio called Giulio Romano, in the manner
(Rome c. 1499 - Mantua 1546)
Attributed by the 19th-century fidei commissum to a Venetian school, the painting is part of a group of works in the Galleria until recently assigned to Giulio Romano and now considered – with the exception of the fine Madonna with Child and Young St. John the Baptist, the autography of which is certain – products of his flourishing workshop, perhaps derived from originals by the Master. The anonymous woman portrayed, is richly dressed. Note her clear-cut features and the intensity of her look, executed by an artist perhaps without great talent, but with a remarkable capacity for introspection.
