Portrait of a woman

Veneto school


Mentioned in the collection as a work of the school of Titian, the painting was then attributed to Jacopo Palma, Vincenzo Catena, and Girolamo da Santacroce, a painter from Bergamo. None of these attributions seems convincing, though in any case the Venetian origins of the portrait are not in doubt.
Wearing a dress with a wide, square neckline, the lady – unlike the figure in Carpaccio’s portrait – does not display any particular ornaments, but only the usual string of pearls symbolizing chastity and purity.
