A hottie

This painting of a lovely lady is attributed to Raffaello Sanzio (Raphael). La Fornarina, oil on panel, 1518-19.

The style of this painting is not as delicate as much of Raphael's other work. For that reason, there is speculation that this painting might have been done by a follower of Raphael, or perhaps it is a copy by a skilled assistant in his workshop of a lost original.

She's a babe nonetheless.
