Mariane de Austria



A garment inspired by the portrait of the Queen of Spain by Diego Velasquez (1652/3, KHM, Vienna). The upper skirt is supported by a guardainfante construction. The heavily reinforced doublet was referred to as a jubón encotillado. The other pages show the use of the veil. Thanks to Martin Hrib and Daniel Krizan for their help.
