1781 Comtesse de Moreton de Chabrillan by Louise Élisabeth Vigée Lebrun (auctioned by Heritage Auctions)

This is probably Jeanne Marie Louise de Moreton de Chabrillan who married twice.

This is a wonderful example of a chemise à la reine; the Dreamstress site uses it as an example of the style. It resembles later Empire style dresses, but the waist band is wider and the waistline is lower.
