Unknown artist, Britain
The Cholmondeley Ladies (c.1600–10)

Spot the difference!

This painting is of two Ladies who were born the same day, married the same day, and had babies on the same day!

To celebrate the birth of the new babies, the women are shown in bed and their babies are wrapped in red fabric. Although they look Identical at first glance, the lace, jewellery and eye colours of the ladies and babies are in fact different.
