Portrait of Laura Eustochia
c. 1529
Oil on canvas, 118 x 93 cm
Private collection

Probably in 1529, Alfonso d'Este asked Titian to provide a pendant to his (unfortunately lost) portrait, a portrait of his mistress, Laura Eustochia. The widower Alfonso had taken up with Laura in 1526, and in the following year she had produced a son, who was named after his father. Although unwilling to marry the humbly born Laura, Alfonso planned to include her son in his scheme for the succession.
