Upgrade image from the Google Art Project via Wikimedia. The original of this portrait (next image) has numerous cracked paint and other flaws that were removed with Photoshop. The entire background was also blurred to make this image. This replaces an image originally posted on 25 July 2012. Also posted to Elizabeth Wrottesley’s new Subalbum here.

Lady Elizabeth wears no jewelry. Instead, she wears a row of flowers in her hair, a lace neck band and jabot, and shimmering bows en échelle.
