Portrait of a Girl from the Redetti Household

Giovan Battista Moroni

The girl is dressed like a lady of her age, with an elegant brocade dress and a precious pearl necklace, but does not appear overly intimidated by the role she is forced to play. Her intense gaze, in which melancholy and proudness combine, remains one of the most celebrated and powerful detail of Moroni’s painting, already acclaimed in his own time for his closely resembling and natural portraiture.
