Margaret, Countess of Orford wearing a Reubenesque costume by a followe ofHerman van der Mijn (private collection)

From bridgemanart.

It did not take long for van Dyck revivals to begin, although this dress has a 1700s flair. I cannot tell if the dress has a wheel or wide peplum spread over a full skirt or not.
