ca. 1738 Fürstin Anna Friederike von Anhalt-Köthen, geb. Gräfin von Promnitz by Antoine Pesne (location ?)

Her genealogical sketch is here. The German-language Wikimedia caption Google approximately translates to, "princess Anna Friederike of Anhalt-Köthen, née Countess von Promnitz (1711-1750) in a white-silver-gray lace dress with a bouquet of flowers at the neckline. A red velvet robe surrounds her as a symbol of her princely state. The sitter was the 3rd wife of Prince August Ludwig of Anhalt-Köthen (1697-1755) from 1732."
