1852 Claire-Emilie, Vicomtesse Aguado, Marquise de las Marismas del Guadalquivir, nee Miss MacDonell by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (Châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon - Versailles, Île-de-France, France)

I can find very little about her. Her title, marquise de Las Marismas del Guadalquivir means marquise of the Guadalquivir marshes. Her husband was probably Alejandro Aguado y Moreno, II Marqués de las Marismas del Guadalquivir. The first marqués, Alejandro Aguado y Ramírez de Estenoz, was a soldier and prominent banker in Spain during and after the Napoléonic wars.

Claire Emilie posed for two Winterhalter portraits as well as the 1855 group portrait of Empress Eugénie; this portrait is from 1852.

This portrait of the marquise de Las Marismas in pink and black lace is similar to the 1846 Winterhalter portrait of the duchesse d'Aumale.
