Portrait of Isabella of Portugal

Titian (Tiziano Vecelli or Tiziano Vecellio), 1548

The Empress holds an open book in her left hand, perhaps a missal or prayer book, and looks at a distant point with a preoccupied expression. She shows some stiffness, perhaps related to the concept of majesty. She wears a rose-colored velvet dress ornamented with rich gold braid and trimmed with rhinestones. It is decorated with jewelry, including the necklace of pearls with a clasp at the chest. (
