1863 Louisa Montagu, Duchess of Manchester, née Luise Fredericke Auguste Gräfin von Alten by Camille Silvy colorized

National Portrait gallery, London has two portraits of this person, not available on their Web site, dated 24 July 1862.

Colorized photos are a treat. So much is lost of dresses in black and white photos while sepia toning and other colorations have the potential to mislead a viewer. The black skirt with white lace trim under a purple shawl trimmed or lined with what appears to be tan paisley creates a vivid impression.
