ca. 1842 Victoire, Duchesse de Nemours, Prinzessin von Sachsen Coburg Gotha by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (private collection)

From Their photo shows this portrait as hung on a wall flanked by vases. The background is removed and the handles of the vases have been masked with Photoshop; the portrait has not been altered.

Victoire's bodice uses gathered cloth instead of pleats bound by the vertical center strap to achieve a similar effect in this 1842 Winterhalter portrait.
