ca. 1778 Marie-Antoinette by Elisabeth-Louise Vigee-Lebrun (location unknown to gogm)

Reunion des Musees Nationaux has an image for an almost identical Vigee-Lebrun portrait at Versailles.

The court attire worn by Marie-Antoinette in this 1778 Vigee-Lebrun portrait is remarkable for the paucity of jewelry.
