This Clouet portrait of Anne de Pisseleu shows her wearing a gracefully draped necklace caught up beneath the center of her neckline . She also wears a shallow, but long, necklace to fill in the area bared by the square neckline. Necklaces were often draped in multiple swags by being caught up at one or more places on the bodice as hers is.
