Rococó: Men generally wore different variations of the habit à la française: a coat, waistcoat, and breeches.  The waistcoat was the most decorative piece, usually lavishly embroidered or displaying patterned fabrics.  Lace jabots were still worn tied around the neck.  Breeches usually stopped at the knee, with white stockings worn underneath and heeled shoes, which usually had large square buckles.  Coats were worn closer to the body and were not as skirt-like as during the Baroque era.

Biografía: Ambrosius Benson (1495-1550)  Ambrosius Benson nació en Italia pero comenzó a trabajar en Brujas en 1518. Inicialmente, él trabajó como ayudante a Gerard David. Sus pinturas eran acertadas en los mercados italianos y españoles y fueron creadas específicamente para la exportación a esas localizaciones. Benson pintó sobre todo pinturas religiosas pero también produjo algunos retratos.

By Ambrosius Benson This has to be something about not glorifying in your beauty for you will die and it will disappear. I don't know Italian so I hope to find an accurate translation.

Starlight Masquerade Venetian Renaissance Portraits- Mother and Daughter. Ok. See the horned hair? Now, tell me why a "courtesan" hairstyle was being done in a Mom/Daughter portrait. IT WASN'T. The hair was meant to represent Diana the huntress in a crescent shape on your forehead. Diana also was a virgin. Chaste. Bottom line: Not hooker hair. Stop spouting myths. (Sorry, I had to have a throwdown with someone at the Knowne World Courtesan Social about this..)

I do love that fantastic horned hair. Starlight Masquerade Venetian Renaissance Portraits- Mother and Daughter
