1779 Izabela Potocka as Polyhymnia by Pompeo Batoni (Muzeum Pałac w Wilanowie - Warszawa Poland)

Her given name was Elżbieta, but she is also known as Izabela. Unfortunately, her mother was also Izabela Potocka who married Stanisław Lubomirski (her Subalbum is here). A genealogical sketch of Elżbieta Lubomirska who married Polish patriot Ignacy Potocki, this Izabela Potocka, is here.

From 18thcenturyblog.com.

The dress is theatrical, but her hair is in keeping with 1779 style.
