Baronne d'Astier by Thomas Couture (Musée d'Art et d'Archéologie, Senlis)

This is not the image of the Baroness normally found on the Internet. I added brightness to show the folds of her dress and separate her sleeves from her bodice.

Baroness d'Astier wears the Victorian equivalent of the little black dress in this Couture portrait.
