17C Woman by Wenceslaus Hollar (European-born mostly English artist, 1607-1677)

Wenceslaus Hollar (European-born English artist, 1607-1677) woman, back view. 1645. We have few depictions of women in the 17C British American colonies, but the portrait prints of women by Wenceslaus Hollar allow us to see the hairstyles & fashions being worn on the other side of the Atlantic during the early years of the colonization of North America.
