1761 (first done) 1770s (modified) Geneviève Rinteau de Verrières by François Hubert Drouais (location unknown to gogm)

According to the Metropolitan Museum, the portrait was done in 1761 and modified later to account for the high coiffure.

Mme. Rinteau uses flowers and feathers to decorate her un-powdered high coiffure in this French sophisticated indoor scene.
