1571 -1576 (between) Eleonora (Dianora) of Toledo (Medici) by a worker in the Alessandro Allori studio (State Hermitage Museum - St. Petersburg Russia)

From the museum Web site; spots and flaws in the background removed with Photoshop and the image enlarged by one quarter and made lighter by gogm.

The partlet and ruff of this dress are magnificent. This is also the only portrait in this Site with both rolled and tabbed sleeves. How much of this is artistic lisence is a matter of speculation.
