1851-1853 Princesse Albert de Broglie, née Joséphine-Eléonore-Marie-Pauline de Galard de Brassac de Béarn by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (Metropolitan Museum)

No fashion collection would be complete without images of the Baronne de Rothschild and this Lady, Princesse Albert de Broglie, both by Ingres.

The Metropolitan Museum notes, "After Ingres completed his portrait of the comtesse d'Haussonville (The Frick Collection, New York) in 1845, it was suggested that he also paint one of her beautiful new sister-in-law, the twenty-eight-year-old princesse de Broglie."

The Metropolitan Museum has this note about the contents of the chair she leans on:  "The princess is depicted in an uncluttered room with pale gray paneling. A blue-buttoned banquette, or borne, stands unobtrusively against the wall behind a gold damask armchair displaying her accoutrements: a mother-of-pearl and enamel fan, white gloves, a white shawl embroidered with gold thread, and a satin-lined black velvet cape trimmed with feathers, fringe, and jet beads."
