ca. 1571 Elisabeth of Austria by François Clouet (Musée Condé - Chantilly, Picardie, France)

From Google Art Project via Wikimedia; the background was very spotted so I teased out areas of what appeared to be the original colors, expanded those areas, and used them to fill in the rest of the background. I did not blur the background, but it is not the same as in the original. There was some spotting and numerous craked paint flaws on her face and dress that I fixed with Photoshop. I had to leave the bottom and lower part of the left edge largely as found, except for removing some spots. I also filled in shadows and increased exposure. This took a long time.

This dress and the jewelry are similar to those worn for her 1570 Clouet portrait. The sleeves are set apart by a band of piping and piped tabs
