1852 Varvara Buturlina by Vladimir Ivanovich Hau (location unknown to gogm)

I do not know if she was born Burtulin or Leontiev.

From Wikimedia.

Varvara Burtulina looks very determined in this superb 1852 Hau character study, perhaps to get out of her corset, while wearing a formal dress with short sleeves and lace bertha.
