1796 Countess Anna Ivanovna Tolstoy, nee Princess Bariatinsky by Elisabeth Louise Vigee-Lebrun (sold by Stair Sainty Galleries)

I cannot find sufficient information about Anna Tolstoia to justify creating subalbum for this and the next two images.

From Stair Sainty; dark spot removed from bodice with Photoshop and image enlarged one third by gogm. Upgrade image - posted 6 September 2012.

Anna wears two waist bands, one almost at breast height a la Révolution and the other at a more natural height, that create a roll of fabric around her waist.
