This portrait of the Vicomtesse d'Haussonville is probably one of Ingres' most famous works. She has a very formal very Ingres pose in this 1845 work.
The mirror shows the elaborate work in the back of her coiffure that looks very straight and subdued in the front. Ingres is noted for capturing details of dress and jewelry. Her dress lacks the seemingly obligatory off shoulder neckline, although the neckline in the center front is hidden by her arm.
