This is a portrait of Margaret of Austria. Only Margaret’s face and upper body can be seen. She is depicted turned and looking slightly to the left. She wears a black dress, the outline of which is difficult to see against the dark background of the picture. She also wears a widow’s hood - her hair is completely covered by a white cap with a veil over her forehead, and her throat is also covered by a large square collar. Her bare hands rest on a brown table top that can just be seen at the bottom of the picture.
