Woman by a Fountain by Jean-Baptiste Oudry (Museum of Fine Arts - Boston, Massachusetts USA)

There were numerous shiny lines in the image that I removed with Photoshop.

Oudry portrays a woman wearing aristocratic dress including bead or pearl ropes to secure her bodice that is opened to reveal her lace-edged chemise. She wears a floral headdress and a wrap that qualifies as a coat due to the notched sleeves.
