1633-1635 (probably between) Anne Sophia, née Herbert Countess of Carnarvon by Sir Anthonis van Dyck (auctioned by Christie's)

Her article from thepeerage is here. The informative lot notes from Christie's are here.

Anna Sophia's dress has a plain linen-like collar and white bows for decoration. She wears numerous pearls arranged as a rope tying her bodice and a draped necklace. She wears more pearls in her hair. A rope of pearls descends from somewhere in her sleeves to wrap around her arm.
