oil on paper 10x7
There are several assumptions concerning the identity of this young woman (Simonetta Vespucci, Clarice Orsini, Fioretta Gorini etc.), but I am inclined to believe her to be Clarice Orsini. The picture was partly repainted,and even the attribution to Botticcelli , in 1475,is disputed.
I enjoyed painting this portrait for its colours, ;it is a pity I was not brave enough to draw entirely her dress, which was elaborate and would have been an interesting challenge...Maybe it will be for another time
