Portrait of my heroine Madeleine

Ok, so actually, it's the Countess Ekaterina Vasilievna Skavronskaia, née Engelhardt, Prince Potemkin's niece. Many thanks to Kevin J. Kelly for his wonderful website, devoted to the work of Elizabeth Vigée-LeBrun, portraitist extraordinaire.

I saw this portrait and knew this was Madeleine. Am still searching for Henri.
