1761 Madame de Flandre de Brunville by Alexander Roslin  (Musée des Beaux-Arts de Tours - Tours, Centre-Val de Loire, France)

The museum’s Web site has this note (from its Google translation) about the portrait, "The Madame de Flandre de Brunville wears a deep red dress, edged with fur, and sleeves in pagodas with a triple rank of engaging. This dress, characteristic of the fashion of the mid-eighteenth century, is reminiscent of that worn by Marie Leczinska in the portrait painted by Nattier in 1748 which was so many copies and inspired many painters. The red taffeta of the dress and the raspberry velvet of the thick, fluffy and fur-lined suit meet each other with happiness, and are enhanced by the background worked in coppery brown tones.” This portrait was painted along with one of her husband, Antoine de Flandre, seigneur de Brunville. The notes for her husband’s portrait date the portraits to 1761 and identify her as Jeanne-Marie Dumont.
