1825 Zoe Talon Countess of Cayla with her children by Baron François Pascal Simon Gérard (Versailles)

What a last name! The children are named Ugoline and Ugolin. She was maîtresse-en-titre of Louis XVIII. Her Wikipedia article is here.

Countess Zoe wears a transitional dress with a waistline between bust and waist and puffed sleeves as parts of a constructed dress.
