1544 Laura Pola by Lorenzo Lotto (Pinacoteca di Brera, Milano Italy)

The Wikipedia article for Lorenzo Lotto is here.

Lorenzo Lotto portrayed Laura Pola in gorgeous casual dress with a, possibly, crocheted cap and wrap in this 1544 portrait. Her dress appears to lack a conspicuously separate bodice or vee waistline. She wears something like a crocheted scarf with tassels matching her cap over her partlet.
