This beautiful portrait, typical of his work, presents with simplicity and frankness a young woman holding her cat, gazing naturally at the viewer. Her red shirt reminds us of the "camicie rosse". Involved as a volunteer during the Italian campaign of 1859, Borrani sided with the partisans of the Italian unification. One of his most famous paintings represents an interior scene with a group of women sewing red shirts for the volunteers (Cucitrici di camicie rosse, 1863, private collection).
