ardatli asked: I've been through your 1500s tag and not found what I needed, so I'm hoping you can point me in the direction of something I've missed. Have you come across any contemporary images of WOC from the 16th cen in middling class -> aristocratic dress? England/France preferably, but I'll take anything you've got! This powerpoint of mine desperately needs some variety on the female side.
Hmmm. I might not have exactly what you’re looking for, but i’ll do my best.

I wish I would’ve seen ANY OF THESE PAINTINGS in school. Like most people who went through art history in school I had no idea that there were paintings of POC. Now I know, and I’m more than a little frustrated that this topic was glossed over. Things like this have a HUGE effect on how people see the world…
Live and learn. Every day.
