1616 copy of 1570 original Ana de Austria by Bartolomé González y Serrano (Prado)

Anna of Austria wears a number of diamond jewels in this 1616 copy of a 1570 portrait of her as well as a Habsburg double eagle. This is from the Prado site.

The Spanish language Wikipedia article for Bartolomé González y Serrano is here.

She again wears a double eagle jewel.

She wears an outer gown of gorgeously-patterned white fabric with a deep (to the point of her bodice) waist over a thoroughly slashed under-garment. Her collar opening reveals a plain white lining. Her cuffs may reveal her chemise. Tabs appear on the edge of the collar, the edges of the cuff openings of the false sleeves, the shoulders, and the edges of the sleeves just above the cuffs while her under-garment has many small, regularly-spaced slashes. The under-bodice appears to be fastened by a set of small (pearl?) buttons.
