1905 Countess Maria Mikhailovna Volkonskaya by Konstantin Makovsky (Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts, Tiblisi Georgia)

Maria Mikhailovna Volkonskaya, shown here, is not Maria Raevskaya Volkonskaya or Maria Kikina Volkonskaya.

The combination of Maria's jewelry and dress is magnificent in her 1905 Makovsky portrait. While vee waistlines were out of style outside of court, this portrait shows they are in fashion in court.
