Portrait of a lady, c.1490. oil on panel, 51 x 34 cm. pinacoteca ambrosiana, milan. giovanni ambrogio de predis (c.1455-after 1508). a renaissance painter and illuminator from milan, born into a family of lombard artists, he first trained in art with his brother cristoforo de predis, also a book illuminator while also designing coins and excelling in portraiture.

being a court painter to the duke of milan, lodovico sforza, de predis was highly regarded as one of the best painters of his time. he had been in contact with the great leonardo da vinci when the latter first arrived in milan around 1483. de predis was best known for his portraits his portraits, as might be expected, served to present the powerful image of his patron, the duke of milan, among his allies and friends abroad. as a case in point, maximiliam i, before agreeing to marry the duke’s daughter, had requested a painting of her so as to get an approximate idea of what he would expect to find in terms of beauty.

this painting had previously been attributed to lorenzo costa by longhi and to francesco francia by volpe. the identity of the sitter still is a mystery (would she perhaps be beatrice d’este, the duke of milan’s wife?). until more documents pertaining to his work see the light the mystery will continue.

Portrait of bianca maria sforza, c. 1491-1493. oil on poplar panel. 51 x 32.5 cm. widener collection. national gallery of art, washington, giovanni ambrogio de predis (1455-1508). with just 22 years-old, bianca maria (1472-1510) was a desirable partner because her family was filthy rich and they knew it!. her uncle –the duke of milan– made it quite clear that the right suitor could get a very nice dowry in exchange for helping to defend milan against the french. therefore, with this state of affairs, maximiliam i of austria wished to have portraits of the woman so as to see if her beauty was up to his taste and expectations.

the young bianca maria –cousin and sister-in-law of isabella of aragon– here appears in all her splendour, exhibiting the wealth of the sforza family; her headdress style –in the form of a small bush or scopetta– reflects one of the symbols of the sforzas (it is written the family motto: merito et tempore). her hairstyle is rounded off  by the coazzone or roll of hair which hangs down her back and which is ornamented with braidings while she also wears a trinzale or sort of cap which helps fastens her hairstyle at the back of her head.  her luxurious gamurraor dress is full of expensive details such as the jeweled belt and her necklace plentiful of pearls.

maximilian finally got married to the duke of milan’s niece (bianca maria) and felt, accordingly, under the duty to defend his wife’s duke of milan’s –lodovico il moro– lands from the french king…but that’s another story.
