1795 María Pilar de la Cerda y Marín de Resende, duquesa de Nájera by Vicente López y Portaña (Prado)

This is an early work of the great Spanish portraitist Vicente López y Portaña whose Wikipedia article is here. He is not well-known in the USA, but should be.

The Duchess wears a jumble of a huge hat, big coiffure, fichu, and wide skirt speared by her vee waistline in this 1795 López y Portaña portrait.
