ca. 1809 Lady Harriet Cavendish (1785–1862), Countess Granville by Thomas Barber (Hardwick Hall - Doe Lea, Chesterfield, Derbyshire UK)


The upturned center bodice is reminiscent of Renaissance crescent necklines. Otherwise the dress is strikingly plain. The neckline of her dress is lost in darkness, even when the image is made lighter (not shown).
