1759 Frederick Charles, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Plön by Johann Heinrich Tischbein the Elder (location unknown to gogm)

Those portrayed are, from left: his youngest daughter, Princess Louise Albertine, Princess of Anhalt-Bernburg, Duke Friedrich Carl, his oldest daughter, Princess Friederike Sophie, Countess of Erbach-Schönberg, his wife Duchess Christine, born Reventlow, his mother Dorothea Christine, born Aichelberg, an African servant, and finally his second daughter, Princess Charlotte Amalie, Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg.

From Wikimedia, where the identities of the people are listed.

This outdoor, but formal, group portrait shows pannier as worn. The panniers of Charlotte Amelie's dress to right and Louise Albertine's, to left, dresses push up at both ends, an effect enhanced by the vee waistlines. Louise Albertine has raised her hand above her shoulders, a rarely depicted position. Louise Albertine's stomacher has bows or some kind of ornaments arranged en échelle. Dorothea Christine's dress appears to be the only one without a separate stomacher.
