ca. 1794 Probably Pauline de Chauvigny, Herzogin d'Aumont by François Dumont (Tansey Miniatures Foundation collection, Bomann-Museum - Celle, Niedersachsen, Germany)

Her genealogical article is here and a sketch, with her marriage date to the duc d’Aumont, is here. She first married Antoine Charles Gabriel de Bernard de Montessus de  Rully, Comte de Rully in 1776 and then Louis Marie Céleste d’Aumont, duc d’Aumont, among other titles, in 1791. She had no children.

I have no idea where this was painted. Many aristocrats were "taking it one the lam" in 1794. She was a Lady-in-Waiting to Marie Thérèse de France, duchesse d’Angoulême, so ,wherever she was in 1794, she was back in France for the Bourbon restoration.
