1841 Helena Beloselskiy-Belozerskiy by Christina Robertson

The Wikimedia page where the next image came from has this biography of her, "Hélène Bibikoff was initially married to Prince Esper A. Belosselsky-Belozersky and subsequently to Prince Kotschoubey, the son of the chancellor of the Russian empire. A woman of great wealth, even by the standards of her time, the Princess travelled extensively, mingling in the European courts, and entertaining lavishly. Her palace on the Nevsky Prospekt, St. Petersburg, was the setting for balls that rivaled those of the court in all its grandeur. She is reported to have maintained her role as a social leader at the imperial court with autocratic zeal."

Helena Beloselskiy-Belozerskiy is shown reposing in a pre-crinoline evening dress with a lace bertha and a bodice and waistline accented by enhanced darts. She wears spectacular jewelry for a girl who is resting.
