French Hood Images

Full View of Unknown Lady

Unknown Lady, by unknown artist, date unknown. By her hood style, I would date this late 1490s to 1500s.

Because of the fold in the white layer, I think she may be Flemish. Note her undercap, visible under the white layer and black hood, is decorated, probably in embroidery, like is seen in this extant cap.
