Marchesa Brigida Spinola Doria

Marchesa Brigida Spinola Doria

Date: 1606
Artist: Peter Paul Rubens
Repository: National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC

Rubens originally executed a full-length portrait, with the marchesa standing on a terrace with a view into the distant landscape at the left, but unfortunately, at some point during the 19th century, the canvas was cut down to its present format.
