Portrait of a Woman

Oil on canvas, 87 x 71 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

The presentation of the unidentified woman in this painting suggests the existence of a companion piece, a portrait of a man. Unfortunately, this painting is now lost (or unidentified). The portraits were probably produced to commemorate a betrothal, or marriage.
