ca. 1852 Vicomtesse de Calonne by Gustave Ricard (Louvre)

The brief Wikipedia article for the painter Gustave Ricard is here.

Ricard portrays the Vicomte Calonne in a black dress with a double neckline, the high neckline and a vampish décolleté neckline under gauzy fabric. Her coiffure could be said to be à la Betty Boop.
