Portrait of a Girl

Painted by Gilbert Jackson in 1638 this painting is in the Birmingham Museums collection. The unnamed girl wears a green silky silver-embroidered bodice (or perhaps it’s braid), trimmed with lace around the neckline and sleeve cuffs. A ribbon bow around her waist is copied by the one in her dressed hair and on the lace collar.
