Young Woman with a Unicorn - 1506 Raphael (Italian, 1483-1520) "This striking image of a young beauty, certainly one of Raphael’s finest portraits, is also one of his most enigmatic paintings. Scholars continue to debate the identity of the blonde maiden: could she be the bride of Agnolo Doni, the wealthy Florentine who also commissioned Michelangelo’s Holy Family? Or perhaps it depicts the infamous Lucrezia Borgia, Renaissance femme fatale and illegitimate daughter of Pope Alexander VI? Others have suggested Giulia Farnese, the alleged mistress of the same pontiff. The key seems to be the adorable mini-unicorn the subject holds in her lap it was a symbol of purity, appropriate for a young noblewoman. Yet this too holds a secret: X-ray examinations have revealed that the unicorn was a later addition, painted over Raphael’s original choice: a dog. The reason for altering the painting might yet reveal the identity of the sitter perhaps a dog, symbol of loyalty, was thought tasteless after her betrothal went sour. While Raphael’s subject remains a mystery, his inspiration is clear this portrait was painted only a few years and possibly just a few months after Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa. Although Raphael’s canvas is much brighter, he borrows its pose and format from Leonardo’s work. It’s a testament to the respect of an emerging genius for an old master, and evidence of the fertile creativity and exchange of ideas that characterized the Italian Renaissance." througheternity.com.
