Couple Embracing by a Window, anonymous, c. 1675 - c. 1700

paper, h 294mm × w 209mm More details

Everything in this picture evokes the social elite’s lifestyle in the late 17th century: the elegant furniture, the painting on the wall, the view on a lavish garden pavilion, and above all the couple’s luxurious dress. But this lady reveals that her undergarments – stockings and lace – are just as refined. Her tantalizing pose reveals a lot, while concealing enough to titillate the imagination.
