      Catherine de' Medici, 1556 possibly by Agnolo Bronzino, as Queen of France. "Her mouth is too large and her eyes too prominent and colourless for beauty", wrote a Venetian envoy as Catherine approached forty, "but a very distinguished-looking woman, with a shapely figure, a beautiful skin and exquisitely shaped hands".

      1556 Catherine de Medici possibly by Agnolo Bronzino(?) bodice This image shows the head and bodice of Catherine de Medici wearing one of the costliest dresses ever depicted. Even the ruff is jeweled!

      1556 Catherine de Medici possibly by Agnolo Bronzino The dress is of black velvet, entirely covered with a trellis-work of pearls, with sapphires in gold mounts set at the intersections; the spaces in between are embroidered with a design in gold.

      1555ca.? Catherine de Medici possibly by Agnolo Bronzino. Most impressive dress ever. I wonder how long it would take to count all those pearls?

      Catherine de' Medici, daughter of Lorenzo II de' Medici and of Madeleine de La Tour d'Auvergne, was a Franco/Italian noblewoman who was Queen consort of France from 1547 until 1559, as the wife of King Henry II of France. In 1533, at the age of fourteen, Caterina married Henry, second son of King Francis I and Queen Claude of France. Under the gallicised version of her name, Catherine de Médicis, she was Queen consort of France as the wife of King Henry II of France from 1547 to 1559.
