1686 French Lady dressed for warm weather print

This 1686 fashion print shows a Lady dressed for warm weather. Vitamin D was unknown in 1686 - ladies were expected to have the palest complexions possible so she carries a mask.

The Lady in this 1686 print has swept her train over the bench on which she sits.
