This is corroborated by the Duke of Urbino, who, in a letter he wrote on May 2nd 1536, simply described it as the ''lady in the blue dress'...

The painting's first owners were the Maffei family from Verona, where Titian painted an altarpiece for the Cathedral, and its sonorous gravity and the way the colours traverse the spectrum like a progression of organ chords may take its tone from nearby Brescia, especially the art of Moretto.
