Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. Portrait of Madame Moitessier Standing.

Madame Moitessier, née Inès de Foucauld, was the daughter of a colleague of Marcotte D'Argenteil, a close friend of Ingres. It was Marcotte who persuaded Ingres to paint Inès, as she wanted very much to have a portrait by the painter's hand
