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

Wenceslaus Hollar (European-born English artist, 1607-1677) Woman with with many plaits. 1648. 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.
