Portrait of a Lady (Giovanna degli Albizzi?)

    Newer Older

    Domenico Ghirlandaio
    Italian, c. 1490

    Scholars believe this woman was probably Giovanna degli Albizzi, the wife of a Florentine merchant. The orange blossom in her hand, a traditional adornment of brides, suggests the painting was a marriage portrait.

      I confirm categorically that this young lady may be either Giovanna Degli Albizzi or one among her many sisters (I believe they were 10 girls) since she has the characteristic necklace with the three pearls jewels.
      See on: xoomer.virgilio.it/gpasett/h41.htm
      ..."è quasi sicuramente una Albizzi, dal momento che porta al collo il caratteristico pendaglio a tre perle che tutte le ragazze della famiglia Albizzi mostrano... "
      However, this lady is not as beautiful as the one of the known and identified portraits of Giovanna.
      I would say she is miss unknown degli Albizzi, sister of Giovanna degli Albizzi.
