Eleonor Borghese by Jacob Ferdinand Voet (location unknown to gogm)

From lagarderobe.e-monsite.com; size of image doubled by gogm.

A genealogical outline for her is here.

This Voet portrait shows the ladies could make a wonderful display in something other than studio casual to negligée dress. Her sleeves have accordion pleats separated by bows that emerge from lace engageantes. Her bodice decoration flares outward as it rises up, presumably from a vee waistline. Her hurluberlu coiffure framed with what appear to be ostrich feathers adds to appearance of verdant opulence.
