Lot Essay

The sitter of this portrait has traditionally been identified as Giulia Varano (d. 1547), Duchess of Urbino and wife of Guidobaldo II, based on comparisons with her portrait by Titian in the Palazzo Pitti, Florence. The present painting was attributed to Titian by Georg Gronau, Oskar Fischel and William Suida, independently (written correspondance with the previous owners, 1938- 1939).
