I did a search and there is a whole group of famous paintings done with a modern celebrity inserted as the subject. Some of them are so well done! This one looks to be with Angelina Jolie.

The original is 'Portrait of a Young Woman' by Louise Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun. See: http://www.royal-painting.com/htmllarge/large-29190.html

Yeah, Copespeak beat us to it. Good search skills.

Again, this looks rather like a tapestry. Love the warm colors. She does look pretty sultry as well. You create some lovely tones in your paintings both from the colors and the subjects. Well done, Pat! I find the difference in hair quality between the top part of the head and the trailing part as being very intriguing.

A delightful lady portrait!
It looks more than a couple of centuries later than Renaissance (in Italy at least), dear Pat. Looking at the attire, it's likely dated at Napoleon time or so (some decades across XVIII and XIX centuries) and it's possibly an English painting. I'll try to find it if I can.

It reminds me of the March sisters in Little Women.

You're quite welcome, actually I didn't know her, she was good and you did a pretty good job too ;)

Well done, dear Andrea! Bravo! Napoleon period, as for my guess, was therefore substantially right (a 1797 painting) and the attire too (but not an English painting, rather a French one more in line with that time French looking attire). Here's the original.
