Portrait of a Lady, 1460, by Rogier van der Weyden

Religious restrictions? Just feeling in the mood for a veil? This is the way to do it.

Note that almost 600 years after this portrait was painted, this lady still looks very much like a lady. In fact, she looks more like a lady than most women today. Some standards don’t really change over time. She looked elegant then, she looks elegant now.
