Portrait of a Woman

Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description The sober attire worn in the Netherlands in the mid 16th century did not preclude elegance or richness. This woman's affluence is seen in her embroidered cap, glimpse of a pearl necklace, and a gold chain.. Although she looks straight at us, her body is turned towards her right (our left), very likely toward a companion portrait of her husband.
