- Curator's comments
From an album dated 1618, consisting of sixty folios with fifty-nine paintings of figures, and additional découpages, including floral and vegetal decoration in some margins.
The title given by Titley seems at variance with that inscribed above the figure, though the figure fits her description.
See 1974,0617,0.13 .1-.65 for all folios included in this album.
