According to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, "Sénateur Prosper Crabbe (1827-1889) was a stockbroker and Brussels collector of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century French art.” I cannot find anything about the subject of this portrait.
Stevens portrays a woman in a gorgeous 1880s dress that emphasizes the curves of the upper body and hips.
