Bianca Maria Sforza

 

  Beatrice d'Este married duke of Lombardy, Ludovico Sforza (1491) and introduced the Spanish style. Ladies wore typical hair-dresses (trenzale). The hairdo and neck were decorated by pearls and jewelry made of black amber (ambra nera).

  An example of Spanish style adoption is a portrait of Bianca Maria Sforza (Ambrogio da Predis, National Gallery of Art, Washinton, 1493).
