(b. 1600, Ascoli Piceno, d. 1670, Roma)

Portrait of Carlo Emanuele I, Duke of Savoy

Between 1632 and 1637, Garzoni is documented in the service of the court in Turin, where she executed many works. These included parchments depicting portraits as well as sacred, mythological, and naturalistic subjects. Two posthumous portraits of the dukes of Savoy, Emanuele Filiberto and Carlo Emanuele, of similar dimensions and belonging to this production, are currently kept in the Turinese Royal Palace.
