Comtesse de Montchal by Nicolas de Largillière (location unknown to gogm)

Countess Montchal is dressed in early 1700s style with notched sleeves with Renaissance-like under-sleeves in this de Largillière portrait. Her tabbed outer bodice, that matches her notched outer sleeves, partially covers another layer that matches her sleeves that covers her chemise, visible as a modesty piece and cuffs.
