This work is by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres and located at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Nantes France.
Ingres again demonstrates a talent for documenting the details of feminine dress in this 1814 portrait of Madame de Senonnes.
Madame de Senonnes' dress is not as simple as Comtesse Tournon's with a three-tiered fraise, matching cuffs, and numerous aglets. The back of her coiffure can be seen - a bun and tiara-like jewelry. Aglets date back to the Renaissance.
