Yep according to http://www.metmuseum.org/explore/publications/pdfs/renaissance/divided/j_Slides_7.pdf

There is a sentence that quotes Castiglione as saying a very similar phrase In the article they use the word SOBER and AGREEABLE instead of subdued and desirable. But they all mean the same anyway

This is the answer I gave - good luck!
