This print reproduces a portrait which is in the collection of the Musée du Louvre (Inv. 612). Vasari reports that the head of the sitter was painted by Raphael after a cartoon executed by Giulio Romano, who also painted the rest of the portrait. The sitter, traditionally identified as Joanna of Aragon, is now thought to be Dona Isabel de Requesens.
