Marie Johanne de la Carre Saumery by Pierre Mignard (Château de Cheverny - Cheverny, Loir-et-Cher France)


The left side shows the portrait as available from an art reproduction seller, the right side shows the portrait as photographed where it is displayed, from here. I cannot find out who she was.

Please click on the image to properly view it.

Here is a Mignard portrait of a Lady in casual but formal dress. Marie Johanne's dress appears to have a high waistline - almost as high as in the Napoléonic era.
