"Countess Apraxina" by Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun
|Countess Apraxina (1793)
The Countess wears a dress with a low v-neck over a fichu or chemisette of thin white muslin. Her necklace is likely beads of carnelian or coral, both popular in the era. Her turban is of transparent net or gauze, a real challenge to the artist.
