NOTE:
Cariani was active in Bergamo and Venice, and may have trained with Giorgione (c. 1477-8 -1510) and was strongly influenced by Palma Il Vecchio (c. 1479-1528) and Titian (1485-1576). Bernard Berenson first proposed the attribution to Cariani in 1957. Alessandro Ballarin agreed with Berenson, suggesting a date for this portrait of 1510-15, and referenced the portrait's Giorgionesque character.
