1879 Maria Feodorovna by Ivan Petrovitch Pozhalostin (Boris Wilnitsky)

The date on the signature allows this portrait and the portrait on which it is based, previous image, to be dated to 1879.

Maria's frizzy bangs are what immediately jumps out in this 1879 portrait, then the fichu-like panels emphasizing her bust, and then her pearls.
