1632-1635 Henrietta Maria by Sir Anthonis van Dyck (private collection)

This 1632 van Dyck is another classic image of Henrietta Maria, this time wearing a yellow-orange dress with a jacket bodice. Her dress has two necklines - the first a vee created by a scarf-like lace collar and the second a square created by the border of her lace partlet that abuts the lace of her bertha. Her cuffs seem ready to flip down at any time.
