Painting Associated with the Artist or the Worshop of Alessandro Allori (Italian Mannerist Painter, 1535-1607) Portrait of a Woman c 1557

If Elizabeth I was an icon of fashion then Lettice Knollys was an icon of natural beauty during the 16th century. She got a small, rosy mouth, a straight and narrow nose, and wide-set bright eyes under narrow arched brows were the theoretical "ideal" of the time. Eyes were outlined with kohl to enhance their size or make them appear more wide set. Plucked eyebrows were de rigeur for a court lady, as was a high brow. A high hairline had been for centuries a sign of the aristocracy, too

    I understand entirely and apologize if I was gruff. Apparently this sort of thing is happening more and more. It was my first but I've had some very strange pinners show up on my feed. Again, sorry if I was short tempered.
