1759 Augusta of Saxe-Gotha as Dowager Princess of Wales by Allan Ramsay (location unknown to gogm)

From Wikimedia; spots removed from background with Photoshop by gogm.

This portrait of Princess Augusta shows her wearing a dress adorned with a lace cape that flare out in back, bertha, and a set of engageantes. The shadows make it difficult to resolve if she is wearing a robe à la française or anglaise. The shape of her neckline is also not readily identifiable - I believe it is a square neckline. She does wear a wide skirt.
