Venice, The Republic of Venice

Jacopo Tintoretto(?): Madonna delle Rose

Helsinki, Villa Gyllenberg Art Museum

Note: the attribution of this portrait to Jacopo Tintoretto gives us a dating before 31 May 1594, the date of his death. The style, however, with a waistline which is beginning to shorten, and a neckline which drops below the breasts, possibly belongs to the early 1600s where the waistline and neckline matches and waistline is almost as short as that seen in Franco's drawings of Venetians dated 1609.
