Day 20 - Primary colors
I hope you'r not tired of my 1660s bodice, cause since I've got a few questions about it I'd through I'll give you a closer look.
Fully boned with poufy sleeves, bound tabs and hand stitched eyelets down the front.

On the left: Portrait of a young woman, Thomas de Keyser 1630. I borrowed a few details from this painting, for example the black stripe design on the front panels, the large shoulder wings with patched stripes, and the combination with the striped sleeves.
On the right: me in my reproduction and this nice photo (detail of a larger one) is made by Paul van de Keer.

My favourite part of this beautiful bedroom at Hardwick Hall is the rush flooring which has to be watered to prevent it drying out and becoming brittle. @nthardwick

Eclipses have been fascinating scientists throughout history. Via #Arkyves you'll be able to find more interesting #bookillustrations Thsi one's by Johann Jakob von Sandrart, 1676-1700, and reads:

Das Licht nimt selbst nicht ab, ein dunckler Körper machts, dass ein und anderer, den vollen Schein nicht siehet doch nur auf kurze Zeit

The light does not diminish, a dark body makes that one does not see the full appearance but only for a short time

(Before and after) Severe insect damage caused the sight edge of this frame to crumble in many places, and abrasion of the gilding caused the black paint to show through. Losses were filled and inpainted to reestablish the visual integrity of the frame.

Rather a boring day...... I'm reduced to playing hide and seek in the dining room with Viscount Savage's daughters. I win...... having a slight advantage in being able to move about. We've got tree surgeons in the garden.... high in the air.... perhaps they'll play!!! Probably not☹️#portrait #artdealer#vandyck#17thcentury #diningroom #art#painting

Bodice from 1630-40. The large sleeves and high waist are characteristic of this period. The rather coarse lining is tough but not boned. #boddice #17thcentury #17thcenturyfashion
