honestly, I've not seen any other portraits from that time/place with a gown
that had the bodice a different color than the rest of the gown. Has anyone
I *am* looking for another portrait, though. I'm looking for Laudomia (also
seen it as Laudonia) de Medici by Bronzino. I've seen a B&W of it (it's in
20,000 Years of Fashion) and have a very small color image, but I'd love to
have a larger one to be able to see details...
I even bought the Pitti catalog hoping that there would be an image of her
portrait, but all that was there was a listing and the room that she's in.
