The Grand Duchess of Tuscany is thinking Spring: Fashion

Portrait of Maria Louisa, Grand Duchess of Tuscany. Second half 18th century.  Galleria d'arte moderna (Florence, Italy).
Pearls, lace, floral print! What is your favorite part of this portrait? I am leaning towards the textiles!
Actually, even the table is quite nice....


  1. Can you even begin to imagine what those brooches looked like in real life! *sigh*

  2. I like it... the dress reminds me of spring:) Never seen this portrait of her before.
