Head band of gold and pearls, with pendant and drop pearl at center part. Pretty bows around the braid. Black and gold necklace, small beads. Large gold chain and 'tube' bead necklace. 1550s Moroni Portrait of Isotta-Brembatti Grumelli
Portrait of a Young Woman (detail) ~ artist Giovanni Battista Moroni (1560 - 1578); oil on canvas, 28.9 × 25.6 in. Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Netherlands. The detail of this is so striking. #art #painting
A painting of Joanna of Castile, from the Last Judgement Triptych of Zierikzee, by the Master of Affligem, painted in 1500. I particularly like the cut of the dress along her chest and hips - it mimics the lines of a cotehardie. The detail on her necklace, of a red stone, or piece of coral, in an intricate setting, and hung on a fine chain or cord, is also useful.
