The Empress (1503-1539) wears a luxurious ornamental skirt with grutesco decorations in fashion during the fifteen thirties. Carlos V commissioned Leone Leoni to make this statue along with other portraits of the Hapsburgs. It was carried out years after Isabel´s death, and the artist based it on certain portraits by Titian (P415, for example). Stylistically, it is inspired by the statue of Margar

Somewhat larger than life-sized, this statue of Isabel of Portugal (1503-1539) was made after her death. The empress wears an embroidered dress, following the guidelines of the bronze statue (E00274) made earlier by Leone Leoni, the artist´s father.

The bust of Isabel of Portugal (1503-1539) is represented in profile in a profusely sculpted frame, just like the relief carving of Emperor Carlos V (E00291) that is paired with this one. Beginning with the image of the Empress appearing on medals he, himself, has crafted at an earlier date, Leoni represents her with the same clothing and jewels.
