ca. 1775 Duc de Choiseul, his mistress, the Comtesse de Brionne and the Abbé Barthélmy by Jacques Wilbaut (Getty Museum - Los Angeles, California USA)

A description of the comtesse de Brionne, Louise-Julie-Constance de Rohan, can be seen here. A genealogical sketch can be seen here.

The Countess wears an elaborate dress made mostly of plain materials. Her coiffure is neither curled nor built up and she wears no jewelry. Her hair and dress are reminiscent of 1755.
