Please Note: these are Dutch paintings showing the fashion of the rich Dutch merchant class in the 1650s and 1660s. These fashions would correspond with the English and French, the latter to a lesser extent, since Holland was the main power in this period due to England's Cromwellian reign and France's internal troubles. From the late 1660s onwards though, around 1667, the fashions in England particularly evolve and change.
