Portrait of a Lady (Giovanna degli Albizzi?)

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.
