Wonderful and of outstanding quality miniature portrait of (probably royal) children - 3-4-year-old boy and his 7-8-year-old senior sister - from the late Renaissance period. This large oil on copper miniature demonstrates absolutely all stylistic criteria of works of the famous Italian female artist of the second half of the 16th - begin of 17th centuries Sofonisba Anguissola (our images nr. 13-33 with comparisons convincingly support this attribution).
Sofonisba Anguissola (ca. 1530/1540 Cremona - 1625 Palermo) was the oldest and the most famous of the six sister-artists (the others' names were Anna Maria, Elena, Europa, Lucia, and Minerva).
Prized by her contemporaries such as Vasari, F. Salviati, A. Caro and Michelangelo, the artist enjoyed wide recognition in Italy, as well as in other countries, and moved in circles of sovereigns, aristocrats, literati and artists of her time.
