Lady Elizabeth of Powis (Countess, later Duchess of Powis) by Jacob Huysmans (Powys Castle - Powys, Wales UK)

She should not be confused with Elizabeth Percy.

Duchess Elizabeth's dress seems to be negligée, but it is worn with robes and jewels and a little cherub is shown holding a dish full of fruit. She has a piece of ermine attached to her neckline with a brooch or clasp, supplementing the mass of ermine seen elsewhere in this Huysmans portrait.
