BAROCCI, Federico Fiori
(b. 1526, Urbino, d. 1612, Urbino)

Portrait of a Young Woman

Oil on paper, 45 x 33 cm
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

Her heart-shaped face accentuated by her coiffure, this young woman's expression is more intriguing than her peaches-and-cream complexion might imply. Her coloration is typical of Barocci in these years, to the point that she strongly resembles both a soldier and an angel in other works.
