Vasily Troponin did not portray many aristocrats in his prolific post-serfdom career. This sitter is not honored with a first or middle name. She was born a Levitsky and married a Volkonsky.
Madame Levitskaya Volkonskaya wears a dress of green paisley patterned cloth. Her right arm is covered by a black lace wrap while her right arm shows seven or eight buttons decorating the lower sleeve.
