Margherita di Cosimo II ; portrait of a Medici Princess by Justus Susterman (Ball State University - Muncie, Indiana USA)

Margherita wears a basque-waisted farthingale dress as the transition from farthingales and ruffs continues in this Sustermans portrait. The revers (side panels bordering the central stomacher section of the bodice) are turned back like lapels.
