Madame Augustin de Lapeyrière, née Elisa Cécile Cardon by  Daniel Saint (Louvre)

I made more changes to this than any other image in these albums. The image showed crease lines, some of which are still visible. I also added lightness to show the waistline more clearly.

Mme. de Lapeyrière wears a vee-neck dress like that worn by Saint's sitter the Duchess of Rovigo, but the waist is lower and her skirt has an A-line.
