1839 Countess Maria Alexeevna Olsufyeva by Eugène A. Pluchart (State Tretyakov Gallery, Moskva Russia)

There is a little information about her here; her birth and marriage dates are unknown.

The white satin of Countess Olsufyeva evening dress picks up the darts of her bodice in this 1839 Pluchart portrait. She wears what could be called an open turban.
