photoblog image Hardwick Hall-6

Hardwick Hall-6

 

Detail from yesterday's image.  If the date of 1599 is correct, Elizabeth would have been 66, and I suspect that this portrait was somewhat flattering :-)  For starters, that is an impossibly narrow waist!

I doubt if she had such a clear complexion at the ripe old age of sixty six
Tom Wilson: Unlikely in those days, I think, Chris smile
You must flatter the queen, I suppose.
Tom Wilson: Absolutely essential, when she could have your head off!
and by all accounts she had terribly pockmarked skin...but who would have been brave enough?
Tom Wilson: No one who wanted to keep his head!
I've read about what happened to ladies insides when they did actually have those tight and narrow waists, and it wasn't good!
Tom Wilson: Couldn't possibly be good!
