Pontormo's Cartoon for a Portrait of Margaret of Austria by Elizabeth Pilliod

I recently identified a drawing in the Nationalmuseum at Stockholm, a Study for a Portrait of a Lady (Fig. 1), as a cartoon by the sixteenth-century Florentine artist Jacopo da Pontormo. An additional piece of evidence that did not appear in my earlier written discussions provides the key to several aspects of the Stockholm cartoon. The new evidence is a small sketch in the Uffizi of the same woman represented in the Stockholm cartoon (Fig. 2). This is an intriguing instance of recognition rather than discovery, for although the Uffizi sketch is virtually unknown today, it was attributed to Pontormo almost a century ago by Frederick Mortimer Clapp, and remains catalogued in the Uffizi as "School of Pontormo." The drawing is rubbed and in generally poor condition. Further complicating the recognition of its autograph status is Clapp's association of it with the figure on the lower right in Pontormo's fresco at Poggio a Caiano, which it does not much resemble, as Janet Cox-Rearick observed... [This is a chapter excerpted from "Medieval Renaissance Baroque: A Cat's Cradle for Marilyn Aronberg Lavin," edited by David A. Levine and Jack Freiberg (Italica Press, New York, 2010).]
