Baronne de Benoist by Louis-François Aubry (Louvre)

I believe this is Marie-Guillemine Benoist, an artist with works found on this site from 1805, 1808, and 1813. Her Wikipedia article is here.

This portrait is undated, but the waistline of this post-Empire dress is set very low for the Empire style causing the image to be placed around 1825.
