This portrait shows a lot about the woman in it. The clothes are a very important part of the picture. Her clothes show that she is rich because she is wearing a nice dress and gold. The background in the portrait is blank. Therefore, it does not tell us anything about the woman. I think the artist wants us to know that this woman is proud of who she is, she is very dressed up and she looks like she is happy to have her portrait painted. I can tell this because the lady has a slight smile on. This womans name is Veronica. Veronica is in the richer part of society. She does not work. Veronica cares about her beauty and healthiness.
