Joseph Heintz, the Elder
Portrait of Konstanze von Habsburg, Archduchess of Central Austria, Later Queen of Poland
Oil on canvas
Gift of Julius S. Held, 1982
"This particular painting is outstanding because of its size, detail, and overall beauty. . . . The subtlety of shadowing highlights the intricate patterns in the gown. I cannot imagine how the artist was able to reproduce these patterns in what it seems is an endless repetition."
