"Mary and John the Baptist praying to the Christ child" show one kind of simple draping headdress women wore. It also shows the male Medieval jerkin that was worn commonly in the Medieval era.
"Portrait of a Knight" shows the modest Italian version of puffing at the shoulders and at the knees. This was modest compared to extremes in Northern clothing, especially in Germany. It also shows the flat square-toed shoes of the Renaissance.
