Mezzotint engraving of a portrait painting in the Louvre by Leonardo Da Vinci. Some scholars think she is Lucrezia Crivelli, mistress of Duke Ludovico Sforza; another, less accepted, view is that this painting is Isabella of Aragon. Done around 1495, this painting takes its name from the ferroniere the sitter wears around her brow, a common Lombard fashion. In the 19th century, this work was much admired and widely copied.
