ca. 1515 Mary Tudor closeup from portrait with Henry Brandon attributed to Jan Mabuse (Woburn Abbey - Woburn, Bedfordshire UK)


Mary goes all out wearing an extensively jeweled dress with a gorgeous French hood in this Mabuse portrait. Her dress has slashed sleeves. If this work dates to around 1515, it shows the outlines of 1500s English and French dress were set early in the century.
