|General Description :
|Portrait of a Young Venetian Woman is a small bust length oil on elm panel painting by the German artist Albrecht Dürer from 1505. It was executed, along with a number of other high society portraits, during his second visit to Italy.
The woman wears a patterned gown with tied-on sleeves that show the chemise beneath. Her hair frames her face in soft waves, and back hair is confined in a small draped cap. The work's harmony and grace is achieved through its mixtures of tones, from her elegant pale flesh, to her reddish blond hair, black and pearl stoned necklace, and patterned and highly fashionable dress; all of which are highlighted against a flat black background.
