The Countess de la Valette
Countess De La Valette
Acrylic on Canvas

On a historical note:
Cynthia's great grandmother (x 4) on her mother's side,
The Countess de la Valette,
is one of the subjects in the famous Jacques Louis David painting:
“Consecration of the Emperor Napoleon I and Coronation of the Empress Josephine in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris on 2 December 1804”
(she is pictured with the Countess de la Rochefoucauld, holding the train of Josephine's long ermine-lined cape.)
