CASINI, Valore
(b. 1590, Firenze, d. 1660, Firenze)

Portrait of Christine of Lorraine

c. 1620
Oil on canvas, 199 x 115 cm
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

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.
