"Portrait of a Young Venetian Woman"

Albrecht Durer - Oil - 35 x 26 cm - 1507 - (Kunsthistorisches Museum (Vienna, Austria))

Portrait of a Young Venetian Woman is a small bust length oil on elm panel painting by the German artist Albrecht Dürerfrom 1505. It was executed, along with a number of other high society portraits, during his second visit to Italy.

The woman wears a patterned gown with tied-on sleeves that show the chemise beneath. Her hair frames her face in soft waves, and back hair is confined in a small draped cap. The work's harmony and grace is achieved through its mixtures of tones, from her pale, elegant skin and reddish blond hair and to her black-and pearl necklace and highly-fashionable patterned dress
all of which are highlighted against a flat black background. It is similar in pose and colour tone to his c 1507 A German Woman from Venice, while at least two studies of Venetian women are known, both of which are very daring. One shows the model with a plunging neckline, the other with bare shoulders.

During his visit to Italy Dürer became fascinated by and befriended Giovanni Bellini, an established master when Dürer was still a relative unknown outside of Germany. The Franconian artist's influence can be seen in this work's soft modeling, dramatic lighting and vivid colours and tones.

The work was not identified as a Dürer original until it was found in a privateLithuanian collection in 1923. The identity of the sitter is lost, however in dress and hairstyle she appears to be Venetian rather than Germanic. The portrait is unfinished
a number of elements, noticeably the black bow above her chest, are not as well described as other passages.
