1633-1634 Lady Venetia Digby by Sir Anthonis van Dyck (Northampton Museums & Art Gallery)

Maybe Lady Venetia played Cleopatra in this portrait given the snake draped over her hand and wrap. But van Dyck portrayed her as Prudence.

From bbc.co.

Venetia wears her chemise covered by a gown and a wrap that are clasped together over her chemise.
