The noblewoman from Piacenza, sitting in three-quarter position, looks directly at the spectator. She has a book in her hands, which suggests a break in reading and underlines Catherine’s culture. The neutral and undefined background, the “corymbus” hairstyle, the French dress, the earrings with red stone and the wooden chair, without decoration but with a fine design, contribute to an elegant and measured atmosphere.
