Portrait of a Lady from the Klammer von Weydach Family

Hans Maler (in 1520 - 1525)

Little is known about the South German Hans Maler, literally Hans the Painter, but he must have been a very popular portraitist. He worked for both the imperial court and the wealthiest bankers of his day. This woman was undoubtedly very rich as well, despite the deceptive simplicity of her headscarf with the delicate gold pin - a customary item of clothing at the time.
