1777 Grand Duchess Maria Fiodorovna by Alexander Roslin (Hermitage)

This 1777 Roslin of Maria Feodorovna wearing a lavish jewel- and feather-adorned coiffure is her best-known portrait. The painting is located in the Romanov Gallery in The Hermitage where it is exceedingly difficult to take photographs due to crowds and veiling reflections off of the paintings. From a posting about Roslin on The 18th Century blog.
