1789 Königin Elisabeth Christine in Witwentracht by Anton Graff (Schloß Schönhausen - Pankow, Berlin - Germany)


From Wikimedia.

Elisabeth Christine is dressed as a widow wearing a black dress and veil with her white hair and white ermine providing accents in this Graff portrait. Friedrich died in 1786 so her dress may date back to that year.
