1902 Princess Irene of Prussia, née Hesse

Literacy recurs as a theme in portraits of royals and nobles.

From the Bain collection of the USA Library of Congress. I cannot resolve the studio label at bottom right.

Irene of Hesse's shoulders are framed by the sleeve's over-strap and side band and the bodice appears to be yoked and vee waisted. The sleeve is decorated with a clasp above and a bow below.
