1649 Mariana de Austria by Diego Rodriguez de Silva Velazquez (Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco)

I have not seen this on display. It could be on display or be in storage. It would probably be displayed at the de Young Museum if it was put on display.

From pinterest.com/louis_or/guardainfante/; filled in shadows and increased eposure. Also posted to Mariana of Austria’s Subalbum here.

Mariana’s dress has a wide dark partlet-like section - the residual ruff of a saya. Balloon segments fit over her elbows, perhaps limiting arm movement.
