RE: [Italian Renaissance Costuming] Re: Help! (striped dress)
- I do not know why people refer to this painting as Lucrezia when it is "a
woman holding up a drawing of Lucrezia". Anyway, there is at least one dress
diary online for the dress.
I have fabric layed aside for a similar dress.
I am so so so sooory. :( I never thought to tell you that. My brain
is being fried from all this heat. The artist is Lorenzo Lotto and
the picture is Lucretia. I like this site for examining dresses
because you can zoom in on areas of interest.
