Lady in Elizabethan Costume

Not on view

This image is probably based on a European engraving following a popular oval format. While the lady wears Elizabethan costume, the large-scale figure, pursed lips, decoratively placed hair jewels, and abbreviated ruff indicate that this was likely made in the eighteenth century, probably at Lucknow where a Europeanizing style was in vogue.
