Ekaterina Nelidova by ? (Tsarskoe Tselo/Pushkin Russia)

Tsarskoe Tselo, now Pushkin, is located near St. Petersburg. Many palaces are located there and I do not know at which palace this portrait is located.

From Free-Photos.biz.

Natalia's coiffure dates this into the later 1770s. Her dress does not have a saque back so she probably wears a robe à l'Anglaise. Her bust is partially covered by a fichu.
