ca. 1630 Anna de Medici with a dog by Justus Sustermans (Kunsthistorisches Museum - Wien Austria)


This is a fascinating portrait from the viewpoint of dress. She wears a full saya in 1630 with carcanet necklace, about twenty years out of fashion, a decade or more after the farthingale went out of style in non-Habsburg Europe.
