The painting is a partial copy of the full-length portrait by Anthony van Dyck in Florence, Uffizi, which until recently was consistently identified as the likeness of Marguerite de Lorraine (1615-1672), the wife of Gaston d’Orléans. The original was probably painted around 1634-1635. In the version in Budapest the sitter is reduced to slightly more than half-length and the space at the right and particularly the left is limited. The corsage on her chest in the original is absent here.

This record is subject to revision due to ongoing research.
