Catherine de Clèves, Madame de Guise by ? (location unknown to gogm)


The lost gallery, a poster on flickr, has a good album "LORRAINE LORENA LOTHRINGEN" about the region's aristocracy from which this image comes. The image was made lighter by gogm.

Catherine de Clèves, possibly with child, wears a framing headdress and a fashionable dress with a wide neckline ruff, crescent neckline, and slashed sleeves with jewels at both ends and the center of the slash. Her ruff appears to have two jeweled draw strings or ornaments.
