Baronne Seillière by Ernest Antoine Auguste Hébert (Louvre)

I cannot find information about her, however she may be Jeanne de Seilliere who married into the Talleyrand family.

All images from Base Joconde and enlarged by half before compositing and the heights were then "tweaked" to match before conversion from Adobe Illustrator to .jpeg format by gogm.

These three Hébert images are a good "guess the date" exercise. The square neckline and coiffure say bustle era while the slim silhouette date this to the middle or later 1870s.
