Don't you wanna, wanna Infanta?

Took a quick trip to the met today, and return bearing drawings. I love the paintings that came out of the spanish Habsburg court; they are a funny looking inbred bunch, with some of the most extreme court wear in europe, a winning combination if ever there was. If you've got a card table under your skirt, no one will notice your jaw! how about some more ruffs? Poor Infanta Maria Teresa has inherited the Habsburg face, but it doesn't stop her from the normal childhood joys of annoying angry looking King Charles Spaniels.
