  Pair of RENAISSANCE PORTRAIT PANELS c.1540 £SOLD  
I have always found it interesting that in Renaissance Portrait Panels, The Gentleman appear as Classical God like figures, and yet the women are usually depicted in there contemporary dress as in this case. As with this pair, dating from the mid 16th Century when women's fashion in particular was becoming increasingly elaborate throughout Europe with their hair being dressed with jewels, feathers and other accessories.
Southern Europe, c.1540.
Carved Walnut, 36 x 37.5 cm.
Some minor old worm, backs refreshed and edges reduced (cut).
