dc.description.abstractLouise Hollandine was an artist and student of internationally renowned Dutch painter Gerard van Honthorst. Though relatively few works now survive that can be authoritatively ascribed to her, Louise Hollandine s artistic reputation is flatteringly memorialized in Richard Lovelace s seldom-remarked poem Princesse Löysa Drawing. Princesse Löysa Drawing reworks in surprising and nuanced ways the celebrated weaving contest between Arachne and Minerva from Book 6 of Ovid's Metamorphoses. After briefly establishing the broader social contexts in which both this Princess Palatine and Lovelace operated, this chapter presents a sustained literary analysis of Princesse Löysa Drawing, exploring both its intertextual, literary connections with Metamorphoses 6 and its relation to two Ovidian portraits historiés by Louise Hollandine, The Daughters of Cecrops and Vertumnus and Pomona.en_IE
