Princess de Broglie by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1851-53)

This stunning Second Empire portrait of an aristocratic sitter is a superb example of Ingres’ realistic style. The gown, the jewelry, the hair all demonstrate details of period costume. Ingres was a master painter of the era, capturing the ethos of the aristocracy in detailed portraits.
