Genre & Material
Where can I find this in Berlin?
One sees a classical renaissance portrait of a young woman with even facial features and at the time popular high-forehead, dressed fancy in a blue, neckless dress with fur trimming. She’s wearing an extravagant pearl necklace and headwear with embroidery on the edge of her head and a ribbon tied around her chin. A tiny needle holds an almost invisible, subtle ribbon around her shoulders. Her almond-shaped, brown eyes rest on the observer of the picture. The wall behind her is plastered with brown and in the bottom half it’s plastered with wood. Nothing can distract from the unapproachable beauty of the lady pictured.
