Portrait of a young woman as Herodias or Salome
The painting cannot be identified in the inventory of the 1833 fidei commissum. The mediocre execution makes it difficult to attribute it to a school or a movement. Geographically, however, it can be placed within Lombard culture at the end of the 16th century. Commissioned by a private patron, the painting combines the portrait with religious iconography, likening the figure of the woman to that of Herodias or Salome with the head of John the Baptist on the plate.
