Comtesse d'Estrades by Pierre Adolphe Hall (auctioned by Christie's)

From Christie's; enlarged 20% by gogm.

Comtesse d'Estrades is dressed up a little more, but still somewhat casually. Her dress has a split bodice with a square neckline. Unfortunately, little of her skirt shows. Her coiffure again places this Hall portrait in the 1780s.
