Description

The young woman is obliged with great elegance; a marten skin descends on the right shoulder resting on the gloved hand; an apron, an ornament used by the northern nobility, is draped over the heavy silk dress. The careful hairstyle, refined by a precious pearl clasp, leaves the perfect oval of the face uncovered. The work, among the greatest masterpieces of Italian mannerism, is certainly one of the most refined examples of a female figure of the sixteenth century and represents one of the highest points of the brilliant experiments on optical deformations, characteristic of the artist's activity. Intrigued by the rendering of bodies reflected on curved surfaces and by the infinite representative possibilities of painting, the icy and intellectual Parmigianino creates a figure that is only apparently firm but which, as suggested by the deformed rendering of the sleeve in the foreground and the movement, just mentioned, of the leg left, is in the act of turning. Also in the green background participate in this game of optical effects, because a light source, in the lower right corner, is about to be revealed precisely by the rotating movement in progress. The precious painting is not documented and the dating oscillates between the Roman years of the artist and the thirties, which mark the return to Parma and a more accentuated reflection on the figures, symbolically deformed, such as the famous long-necked Madonna, now in the Uffizi .
