Ghirlandaio Boxed Notes

From the Clark's Collection-

This fashionably dressed young woman represents an ideal of femininity often celebrated in Renaissance Florence. Her physical beauty would have been considered a reflection of moral virtue, as suggested by the orange blossom she holds, which symbolizes chastity. The identity of the sitter remains a mystery, but the portrait may have been commissioned to commemorate her marriage—she wears a ring and pendant of the kind traditionally given as wedding gifts.
