Portrait of a Lady

Oil on canvas, 39 x 26 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Among the portraits that have been attributed to Uccello, the most similar to his other works is the Portrait of a Lady in the Metropolitan Museum in New York: the gentle features of the beautiful woman (supposedly Elisabetta di Montefeltro, wife of Roberto Malatesta) bear a close resemblance to the two princesses in the St George and the Dragon paintings. However, some scholars attribute the painting to Domenico Veneziano.
