The aristocratic young subject of Campi’s portrait wears a luxurious velvet dress with gold embroidery and a braided hairstyle, both of which were fashionable at the Spanish Milanese court of the 1550s. The present painting likely depicts Ippolita Gonzaga (1535–1563), daughter of Ferrante I Gonzaga (1507-1557), viceroy of Sicily from 1535 to 1546 and governor of Milan from 1546 to 1554, and his wife Isabella di Capua, Princess of Molfetta (1510-1559). Campi seems to have been familiar with this branch of the Gonzaga; first Isabella and later Ippolita herself commissioned Campi to paint Ippolita in 1549 and 1553, corresponding with the dates of her two marriages.1

Although few portraits by Cremona painter Bernardino Campi can be securely dated, Marco Tanzi has convincingly argued that this rare depiction of a female sitter can be dated to 1553-4, due to Ippolita’s age, fashion, and extant documentary evidence. Furthermore, the portrait shares a stylistic affinity with Campi’s portraits from the 1550s and 1560s, such as the courtly three-quarter pose and Titianesque treatment of the face.2

We are grateful to Marco Tanzi for proposing the attribution and identification of the sitter as well as for assistance with the cataloging of this lot.
