Description of the Portrait

She is wrapped in a coat of black with a slight ruffle around the collar, yet it is the delicate flurry of lace at her throat that demands the most attention, marking the rise of mass production and accessibility of luxuries such as bolts of lace. Given the plain backdrop and obscure artist’s name, one might be curious if this was a self-portrait, or one done by a dear friend or family member.
