Comtesse de Blot, soeur du comte d'Ennery, et la marquise de Barbantane by Louis Carrogis (Musée Condé - Chantilly France)

Barbantane is located slightly inland from the French Mediterranean coast, Blot is located in central France, and Ennery is located near the present French borders with Luxembourg and Germany.

The small vertical curl style was sweeping France in 1769-1770, so this image is placed here. The Lady to the left is showing a trace of her her pantaloons. There is no sign of over-skirts.
