Artist's Description

The Lady is Ana de Mendoza, Princess of Eboli, a Spanish aristocrat and a highly respected woman of her day; despite losing an eye as a teenager in a mock duel with a page, her beauty was legendary. More info?…Go to Wikipedia and type in her name. This is one of my favourite works. Her ruff extends off the canvas.

This small mixed-media portrait is made up of metalic paint, silver leaf, found objects (such as broken jewellry, black beads, lace and braid fragments) and gouache, on canvas.
