Apparently her teeth were black? No wonder she's not smiling!  Thanks 
for sharing this, JD. I had just recently asked a friend about this at a 
different forum and so am happy to pass it on.

Best,
Nicole

Can any other members speculate why a portrait artist would paint over 
such a work? Were panels expensive during that period? If so, why? Are 
there any other known instance(s) of portraits of important court 
members that were painted over? I understand it happened with poor 
artists who could not afford new canvas but are there other reasons . . 
. such as it being easier to work over an established physical form?
