1754 Madame Henriette by Jean Marc Nattier (Musée National du Château de Versailles et du Trianon - Versailles France)

The Wikipedia article for this musically-inclined Princess is here. She fell in love with a Prince from the Orléans branch of the family, but never married him for reasons of state and did not marry anyone else.

Princess Henriette's skirt appears to be expansive enough in this 1754 Nattier portrait to rest her cello on it.
