Mantua [English] (…bizarre?)

Mantua [English] (1991.6.1a,b) | Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History | The Metropolitan Museum of Art.


why are they calling names at this gown? it’s just a mantua. gees.

if they think *this* is bizarre, apparently nobody over at MMA has ever seen the Eye and Ear Cloak:


yes. sidetracked again, while looking for one, just one, JUST ONE example of those freaky 1640-1645 forehead plaque things those crazy german chicks were sporting, so i can explicate why they kind of break my heart.
