1619 Alathea Talbot, Countess of Arundel by Cornelius Janssen van Ceulen (Cornelius Johnson) (auctioned by Christie's)

From angustrumble.blogspot.com/ of 16 March 2012.

Alathea Talbot's dress has tabbed sleeves and a ruff emerging from and hiding a high neckline, but otherwise previews 1620s styles with its down turned and flat ruff, elevated waistline, and close skirt.
