(b. 1483, Urbino, d. 1520, Roma)
Portrait of Maddalena Doni1506
Oil on panel, 63 x 45 cm
Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence
This is the companion piece of the portrait of Agnolo Doni.
This portrait is more noticeably covered with a marked craquelure than its counterpart. These hairline cracks in the paint, which appear as the paint ages, particularly affect Maddalena's even features and full décolleté.
