1781 Alexandra Branicka by Richard Brompton (Tropinin Museum - Moskva Russia)

From Free-Photos.biz.

Its still the 1780s as Alexandra poses wearing a bouffant coiffure over a sheath-like dress that does not have panniers beneath while paying tribute to Catherine II using the bust and, probably, the image on the portrait attached to the rosette on her skirt. This could also be called British Casual Comes to Russia.
