From artclon.com/paintings/portrait-of-princess-varvara-golitsyna_10009.html; the image had numerous vertical flaws in the background and cracked paint flaws in her face and dress that were fixed with Photoshop. The heavily damaged lower right corner was also fixed with Photoshop.

The dress worn by this older Varvara, a coat with a hood, is a case of form being compelled to follow function. A tightly wrapped bonnet under her hood helps keep her warm.
