17C Woman - Marie de Rohan, the wife of Claude de Lorraine with amazing pearls


We have few depictions of women in the 17C British American colonies, but contemporary European prints allow us to see the hairstyles & fashions being worn on the other side of the Atlantic during the early years of the English colonization of America.
