1792 Elena Pavlovna by Jean Louis Voille (State Hermitage Museum - St. Petersburg Russia)

Spots and linear flaws removed throughout image with Photoshop.

Elena wears a hybrid dress with a close skirt and a somewhat high neckline in revolutionary style, but a bodice with lace bertha to match the lace cuffs in pre-revolutionary style. Her flower and the upper part of the dress is very much à la Marie Antoinette.
