1818 The Kaunitz Sisters (Leopoldine, Caroline, and Ferdinandine) by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (Metropolitan Museum)

Kreihuber portrayed Leopoldine, probably in the early 1840s.

The waistlines of the Kaunitz' dresses have dropped by a cm or two in this Ingres group portrait; two wear collars while one wears a fraise.
