Antonis Mor: Portrait of a Lady

Portrait of a Lady: Antonis Mor

Portrait of a Lady is an oil painting by Antonis Mor, thought to have been painted between 1550 and 1575, and is of an unknown woman.

The clothing worn by the woman suggests that the woman is Flemish, which aligns with the fact that Antonis Mor was a court painter in the Spanish Netherlands.

This three-quarter length portrait was common at the time due to the enormous popularity of Titian portraits, which were also almost always three-quarter length.

Antonis Mor’s Portrait of a Lady was purchased by the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia in 1948 and is still on display.
