1754-1756 Anne Orde by Arthure Devis (Yale Center for British Art - New Haven, Connecticut USA)

This is a close up from the previous image.

Lady Anne is dressed unusually well for a Devis group portrait in a dupioni silk dress with sheer lace facing panels that reveal the extremely wide neckline of her bodice. There is no sign of panniers so this is probably a robe volante.
