1560 Catherine of Aragon by English school

This spectacular image of Catherine of Aragon was uploaded to Foro Dinastias by licorne31 on 11 January 2009.

 

"English school" means the artist is unknown and presumably English.

Catherine of Aragon is portrayed wearing a square-neckline gown with a partlet adorned with blackwork. This is a good example of the English gable headdress and jewelry. Her partlet is decorated with blackwork. Her dress is a good example of dual necklines, the square neckline created by her bodice and the high round neckline created by her partlet.
