ca. 1789 Maria Luisa de Parma by Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (Prado)

From Wikimedia.


Goya takes one of his shots at Maria Luisa, derisively portraying her dark rodent-like eyes, as she wears a curly bouffant coiffure under a wide, feathered, lace hat and dress with a fichu-covered neck and deep vee waistline and tight sleeves. A somewhat more flattering view of this style can be seen here.
