Label:
The depiction of this praying sitter in profile is typical of a donor figure, possibly indicating that this panel was once part of a larger composition. The painter worked in a style close to that of Ambrogio de Predis, official court painter to Duke Ludovico Sforza of Milan. The luxurious garments, jewelry, and headdress are typical of the latest fashions in Renaissance Lombardy and indicate the sitter's high social rank.
