Princess Ana Maria Luisa of the Palatinate by ? (location unknown to gogm)

From the lost gallery's photostream on flickr; spots and linear flaws were removed with Photoshop, mainly from the background, after the shadows had been filled in and exposure increased, primarily to identify where her coiffure ended and the background began. Finally, the size of the image was doubled.

Ana Maria Luisa is shown dressed for maximum impact in a dress showing sleeves with cuffs and gushing lace engageantes. These features would last well into Louis XV's reign. But her upper sleeves show residual seams from the eras of slashed sleeves. Her large Sévigné bodice ornament is stunning as are her hair jewels. Her dress appears to be made of silver brocade adorned with silvered fabric or lace pn the rever-like panels.
