Countess Anna Ivanovna Pleshcheeva, née Chernysheva by Angelica Kauffmann (location ?)

A Russian-language Web site has this about her (Google translation), "Countess Anna Ivanovna Chernysheva, married name Pleshcheeva (1776-1817), maid of honor of Catherine II (since 1791), who scandalized the courtyard with her illegitimate pregnancy. She was married to the writer Alexander Pleshcheyev and was deported from St. Petersburg to the hinterlands. Known as a close friend of V. A. Zhukovsky and an intermediary in his relations with Maria Protasova.”
