This portrait is traditionally identified as Isabella d'Este (1474-1539), wife of Giovanni Francesco Gonzaga. However, documentary evidence and contemporary descriptions suggest that the sitter may be Margherita Paleologo (1510-66) who married Isabella's son, Frederico Gonzaga, the first Duke of Mantua, in 1531.

Leonardo da Vinci Lithographic Print
Lithographic print of drawing by Leonardo da Vinci entitled Neptune with his Sea-horses., originally drawn c.1504-5\nAcquired by Charles II, King England (1630-85). Bequeathed to Francesco Melzi; purchased by Pompeo Leoni, c.1582-90; Thomas Howard, 2nd Earl of Arundel by 1630 and finally resting with The Royal Collection by 1690.Black chalk on white paper. A study for the drawing of Neptune for his friend Antonio Segni, master of the papal mint. Although highly praised in the sixteenth century, the large finished drawing is now lost and what we see here is a preparatory study. The flowing design and movement is comparable with the Battle of Anghiari on which Leonardo was working at the same time. At the top of the paper is written, in Leonardo's hand a reminder to 'Abasse icchacalli' (lower the horses).\nPrint size inches: 9.3 x 6.1 William George Co
