title: LA BELLE Ferronière

caption: LA BELLE FERRONIERE; this name is said to derive from the profession of her husband who manufactured and sold wrought iron objects, or from the surname of the same: Ferron. Lover of Francis I of France, she herself may have been the cause of the death of the king, which she would have infected with syphilis, perhaps even after having in turn been intentionally infected by her husband for revenge against the two adulterers; but this story may only be a legend. Depiction inspired by the "Portrait of a Lady" painted by Leonardo Da Vinci around 1493, for which it is assumed that the subject may have been Lucrezia Crivelli or Cecilia Gallerani, lovers of Ludovico il Moro, or other noblewomen of the Sforza court. The name "Belle Ferronnière" with which the work is known, would have been attributed in the late eighteenth century since "ferroniere" is also the name of the jewel that the young woman wears on her forehead, so called because it is usually worn by Madame Ferron.
