1824 Natalia Zubova Suvorova by Pyotr Feodorovich Sokolov (location unknown to gogm)

Intricately patterned colorful wraps became prominent as Directoire and Empire styles with minimum skirts came into fashion. Mme. Suvorova wears a colored dress so she puts on a contrasting black and white shawl. She wears a soft bonnet over curly hair while her dress appears to have a high neckline and a neckline ruff.
