Henriette Sophie Christine von Lüderitz, geborne von Rochow, mit venezianischer Karnevalsmaske by Christian Friedrich Reinhold Lisiewski (Galerie Bassenge)

This image was heavily damaged at the upper left corner, top and lower center and right areas. I used Photoshop to remove the damage in the background and spots in the left side of her skirt and general damage in the lower right (visible as smudged areas). A spot on one of the bodice tabs to right was left unfixed. The original image can be seen here.

This portrait could have been painted any time between 1720 and 1789, but the coiffure and artist suggest this portrait of a theatrically dressed woman dates to the 1750s or 60s. The title states she is dressed in the style of the Venice Carnival.
