1857-1858 Countess Varvara Alexeievna Mousina-Pushkina, née Cheremeteva by Franz Xavier Winterhalter (Hermitage)

The Pushkin family makes another appearance, now in this well-known 1857 Winterhalter portrait.

The only lace worn is in the neck band, otherwise Varvara Pushkina relies on an abundance of gauzy ruffles and flounces to create an etheral appearance.
