1860(?) Countess of Pushkin (may be Varvara Musina-Pushkina?) by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (location unknown)

From www.liveinternet.ru/users/katish_09/.

Countess Pushkin wears a dress with a vee neck bodice, probably truncated by a modesty piece to form a trapezoid. The dress may have a laced bodice. It has sleeves flared to accomodate engageantes.
