A Miniature of a Lady in Renaissance Costume, Italian School, 19th Century.

A 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, with a fur draped around her shoulders.

At first glance she is reminiscent of a sibyl, one of the priestesses of the Ancient world.
