1784 Lady Folding a Letter (Comtesse de Cérès) by Élisabeth Louise Vigée-Lebrun (Toledo Museum of Art - Toledo, Ohio USA)

I can find no biographical information about her.

From www.eurocles.com/arpoma/.

The shimmering colors suggest this is a dupioni fabric dress. The colors are striking, particularly the violet plumed hat and the white ruff and black lace wrap. This dress probably gets attention.
