Who was the young woman in Raphael’s famous and enigmatic painting? Sublime Beauty: Raphael’s Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn focuses on the identity of the mysterious subject who embodied his portraits of women during the Florentine period.

This revelatory book includes two essays from experts in Renaissance art, Linda Wolk-Simon and Mary Shay-Millea, exploring the stylistic relationship between Raphael’s portrait and Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, as well as links to Petrarch’s poetry and Renaissance notions of beauty. The painting’s distinct iconography is also examined, including the choice to depict a unicorn rather than a lapdog.
