I’m still in the midst of a research trip in France (and will have lots to report!), but I just came across this illustration on the Net and wanted to post it here:
I don’t believe I’ve seen such a clear image of a woman in a gown riding a horse astride. It was published in 1874, but supposedly based on a 14th century manuscript. (Is this possible?) It’s not Baroque by any means, but it illustrates how a woman in a gown might manage … bunched up!
Hannah, that's a falcon — she's out hunting. Such an interesting sport.
Leah, thank you! It has been great!
I hope you are having a marvelous trip! Happy touring and hunting!
Very interesting… is that a bird perched on her hand? Hope that you are enjoying your research trip
thanks for sharing
