ca. 1626 Constance of Austria by Pieter Claesz Soutman (Alte Pinakotek - München Germany)

Constance mimics Brigida Spinola Doria and Maria Serra Palavisino, and Reubens, in this portrait wearing a satin dress with a large ruff.

Constance's saya has orange linings for the false sleeves and matching false sleeves in this Soutman portrait from about 1626 (?).
