Renaissance art

ardatli asked:

I've been through your 1500s tag and not found what I needed, so I'm hoping you can point me in the direction of something I've missed. Have you come across any contemporary images of WOC from the 16th cen in middling class -> aristocratic dress? England/France preferably, but I'll take anything you've got! This powerpoint of mine desperately needs some variety on the female side.

Hmmm. I might not have exactly what you’re looking for, but i’ll do my best.

I wanted to showcase some of the incredible detail this painting has to offer. All too often, high resolution images aren’t available or leave a lot to be desired (blurry, poorly-lit, et cetera).

I also wanted to include some of the implied Sapphic dalliances that may be going on in some of those pools.
