Stern and cold feeling to this German painting; wealthy woman stands in front of an intense blue background; she is dressed in fine gown with flared sleeves and ruffled cloth at the wrist and neck, and a Medieval hat; her hands are posed holding gloves and chain and many fine rings are on her fingers; a crest or insignia is present, as is German text along the bottom of the work.
