Lady with a veil and feather fan
Ornatus Muliebris Anglicanus


Printmaker: Hollar, Wenceslaus
Publisher: Overton, John




No.15 from a numbered set of 26 full-length figures of gentlewomen, with a title page. This set comprises 16 plates (including the title page) printed on eight sheets. See P.11616-R for further details.


History note: Possibly given by Sir Herbert Thompson in 1920. The set was contained within an envelope of prints given by Thompson, but all of the others are annotated with this information, so it is possible that the Hollar prints do not come from the same source.
