1740-1742 Cornelia Foscolo Balbi by Marianna Carlevaris (Ca' Rezzonico - Venizia, Veneto Italy)

I cannot find anything about her.

From Wikimedia.

The full notched and cuffed over-sleeves of Cornelia Balbi's dress come from the first half of the 1700s. She makes extensive use of diamonds as well as pearls.
