Photograph of a painting by Paris Bordone (1500-71) of a three-quarter length portrait of a standing woman. The woman faces a quarter to the left and gazes upwards, to the right. She wears a hairpiece, pearl necklace and a dress that falls to her waist, revealing her breasts. She holds a rose in her right hand. In the lower left corner is part of a number, likely attached to the painting's frame.

The painting, commonly titled 'Portrait of a Woman with a Rose' is now held in The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Russia.
