A Lady in Renaissance costume, Italian School, 19th Century.

Circular panel within an ornate gilt gesso frame, diameter 7.1cm.
The unknown sitter is depicted with garlanded hair and wearing a white chemise beneath a blue corset and with a fur draped around her shoulders. At first glance she is reminiscent of a sibyl, one of the priestesses of the Ancient world.
