Catalogue Note

When Mortari published this work in 1992 she praised the high quality of the portrait and called it attributed to Salviati, on account of the disparity between the date on the letter, 1558 (which she read as 1553 or 1559) and the style of the composition, being more in keeping of that artist in the period between 1543  and 1548.  An affinity has since been suggested with the hand of Mirabello Cavalori and, though somewhat larger in scale for that artist, there is a distinct similarity in handling, notably the deliberate exposure of underpaint in the flesh tones.
