1764 Princess Galitzine by Louis-Michel van Loo (auctioned by Sotheby's)

Catherina Golitsyna, seen in the last image, died in 1761 so this could be a posthumous portrait or I don’t know the identity of this member of the Golitsyn or Galatzine family. The date is visible in the lower right quadrant so the date is not mis-read. Catherina Golitsyna died childless so this is not the daughter of Catherine. Louis-Michel van Loo was a French painter and his Wikipedia article does not mention his being in Russia. My best guess, and it is a guess, is that this is a posthumous portrait.
