1523 Camilla Gonzaga, condesa de San Segundo y sus hijos by Girolamo Francesco Maria Mazzola, known throughout his artistic career as Parmigianino (Museo Nacional del Prado - Madrid Spain)

Alta resolución image from the Prado.

Catherine de Medici imported good cooking to France. Could it also be she introduced the French sleeve, the style worn by Camilia Gozage here in 1523, to France? She wears a dark under-garment (chemise ?) under a sheer sottana-like garment under an over-dress with over-bodice.
