Portrait of Ortensia Mancini, duchess of Mazzarino

Jacob Ferdinand VoetDocumented from 1676 to 1680

Sforzesco Castle

Sforzesco Castle
Milan, Italy

The
  woman was portrayed during her stay in Rome. In
  those years Jacop Ferdinand Voet painted thirty-seven portraits of
  "ladies" and the fortune of the cycle engaged the painter and his
  workshop in a series of replicas for the top Roman aristocracy. The duchess
  is shown three-quarter length, with her torso turned slightly towards the
  dark background. The
  details of her dress are rendered with extreme virtuosity, using brilliant
  chromatics.
