Isabella de Medici as Mary Magdalen (Lady by Allesandro Allori) (Carnegie Museum of Art - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA)

This image from the lost gallery’s photostream on flickr posted here on 11 September 2016 replaces an image with the title "Lady by Allesandro Allori (Carnegie Museum of Art - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA)" from petrus.agricola's photostream. This image has much better color quality.

The image size was fixed at 39.78 cm high at 59.06 pixels/cm to match the dimnsions of the image being replaced; spots, mainly in the background, removed with Photoshop. The upper edge was fixed with Photoshop and the upper and lower edges were cropped so the image is 28.99 cm wide by 39.56 cm high.

The notes for petrus agricola’s posting stated, "Recent conservation studies suggest that this heavily repainted canvas, in the collection of Carnegie Museum of Art, may be hiding a portrait of Isabella de' Medici by Renaissance master Alessandro Allori."

The fish scale pattern makes this particularly interesting. Her dress is an Italianized saya with the rolled, hanging, and false sleeves and a vee neckline. Her ruff-collar is adorned with many diamond-shaped jeweled swatches while her bun is set with diagonal rows of pearls, all bound with thread retainers.
