Christine of Lorraine (1565-1637) married the Grand Duke Ferdinando I de' Medici in 1589. Nine children were born from this marriage, five boys and four girls.
This painting is the work of Domenico and Valore Casini. The full-life portrait derives from an original by Scipione Pulzone, in which the Grand Duchess is shown in a three-quarter representation.
