1764 La marquise de Migieu by Joseph Marie Vien (Musée des beaux arts - Nantes France)

Google "Marquis Migieu" and you find connections to Savigny-lès-Beaune, a wine region in eastern France.

The Marquise wears a simple dress without prints or patterns rivaling British casual in style decorated with pearls.
