Upgrade image posted 10 December 2015 from Google Art Project via Wikimedia. This portrait appears to have been roughly treated at some time with folding-like flaws as well as numerous spots and cracked paint, but nothing was altered.
Spanish flair reasserts itself in this 1792 Goya with the sitter wearing a voluminous frizzy coiffure with a big framing headdress to match, a wide fichu tied with a bow, and a colorful flounced dress. Her dress appears to have a gold vee-necked partlet section against a U-décolletage under her wide fichu.
