1844 Comtesse Caroline de Vergès née Caroline Brochant de Villliers (1806-1860) by François Louis Dejuinne (Tajan)

I cannot find more than a GeneaNet summary. She was born in 1806 and died in 1860. She married Adolphe Florimond de Vergès by whom she had a daughter.

From Tajan. This work had to be virtually restored by suppressing numerous diagonal cracks, fixing smudges, and removing spots. The skirt below her hand was extensively smeared and probably discolored. I recolored that part of her skirt and had to blur the area. The background was also blurred.

The Comtesse wears a pre-crinoline evening dress with a prominent dart along her center bodice. The maroon bodice is adorned with a pair of black lace bertha panels.
