1815 (or after) Duchesse d'Angoulême and the Hospital at Toulouse by Joseph Roques (location unknown to gogm)


Norris and Oswald in Nineteenth-Century Costume and Fashion (1998 Dover re-issue, p. 26) refer to a cylindrical tall hat as a "Glengarry" hat, but Glenarry hats today, seen on members of Scottish bagpipe bands, are very different.

The Duchess wears a simple Empire-style dress of blue and white striped material with minimum jewelry in this 1815 Roques portrait. Her hair is always shown with a gap in mid-forehead and this portrait is no exception. Feathers dyed to match the stripes are the sole element of royal splendor in this portrait.
