English: Woman by Francesco Laurana (ca. 1472). Cast from original in Berliner museum.

Plaster cast, portrait bust of a woman after marble original by Francesco Laurana. The sitter has been tentatively identified as Ippolita Maria Sforza, the wife of King Alfonso II of Naples, but this theory is not based on any secure evidence.

This cast represents one of nine female portrait busts ascribed to Laurana on the basis of their resemblance to a series of documented figures of the Virgin and Child in Sicily. Two of these busts, in the Frick Collection, New York, and in the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., are closely related to the portrait in this cast as they appear to represent the same person, and have similar bases decorated with classicizing figures. The sitter has been tentatively identified as Ippolita Maria Sforza, the wife of King Alfonso II of Naples, but this theory is not based on any secure evidence. The lost portrait bust in Berlin had the remains of extensive pigmentation, and the faint incised decoration of the dress, was, on the original, a richly gilded pattern. The hole at the breast may once have been covered by a metal brooch or pendant and the cartouche might have originally contained the sitter's name.

The original painted and gilded marble bust was formerly in Berlin, Germany, but was destroyed in 1945.

This bust had been digitalized and the digital model is on open license. It is often used for 3d software demonstrations.
Français : Reproduction d'après l'original du Bode-Museum de Berlin, détruit en 1945. Il a été identifié, sans en être certain comme le buste de Ippolita Maria Sforza ; la femme du Roi Alfonso II de Naples.

C'est l'un des 9 bustes de femmes attribués à Laurana, en raison de la ressemblance avec une série de portraits documentés de La vierge à l'enfant de Sicile. Deux de ces bustes, dans la collection Frick à New-Yorg, et à la National Gallery of Art de Washington, tous deux aux États-Unis d'Amérique sont proche de ce portrait et ont une base similaire, décorée par des motifs classiques. L'original, de Berlin, comportait encore une part importante de pigments et de fines incisions des décorations de la robe et de riches motifs de dorures. Le trou sur la poitrine pourrait avoir été couvert par une broche métallique ou un pendentif et la cartouche pourrait, à l'origine, comporter le nom du modèle.

Ce buste a également été numérisé en trois dimension et sert de référence pour différentes démonstrations logicielles.
