This image is close to what the actual work looks like, at least in terms of darkness.
The Countess Keller wears a spectacular off shoulder dress under a fur-lined satin wrap in this 1873 Cabanel portrait. The nature of the shiny object of her headdress is unidentifiable in the original work, but called a jeweled ornament below. A substantial amount of cabochon jewelry can be seen at left.
