The Seasons

This series shows English women dressed for different seasons of the year. Summer wears a veil over her face to protect her complexion and carries a folding fan, while Winter wears a mask, hood and fur muffler. Hollar’s prints show details and complexities of dress which are often omitted from formal portraiture at this date.
