ca. 1887 Contessa de Leusse by Giovanni Boldini (Museo Giovanni Boldini - Ferrara, Emilia-Romagna Italy)

This may be Blanche du Fay de la Rochette (1850-1932), based on her genealogical sketch.

From jeannedepompadour.blogspot.com/2012/04/giovanni-boldini-peaceful-days1875.

If this portrait was done in 1887, then the bulk of her bustle is hidden behind her. The appearance of her skirt is consistent with a large bustle directly behind her.
