1834 Ekaterina Pavlovna Bakunina by Alexander Brullov (State Russian Museum - St. Petersburg Russia)

From Wikimedia.

Alexander Brullov makes Lady Bakunina into a lovely all-white confection in this portrait (contemporary wedding dresses are rarely white). Her sleeves are covered by saw-toothed epaulettes trimmed with lace.
