                                 This outstanding Baroque oil on canvas painting in the period frame is a wonderful work of art by a Spanish or Italian old master depicts a beautiful young noble beauty in a XVII century attire. Her dress is adorned by a very fine lace, and there are some fresh red carnations in her curls. But, most of all, the spectator's attention is drawn to the painting by the remarkably rendered jewelry she is wearing - a necklace of large and perfectly round white pearls that forms a chocker around her neck; another, very intricate longer necklace, embellished with diamonds and other precious stones; and, in conclusion, a pair of magnificent earrings with large pear-shape white pearls. The painting has been meticulously restored, relined, and has period frame.
