Summary

This enlargement, made from the same negative as 1975.548.122, was printed lightly in anticipation of the retoucher's work. The part of the bow that concealed the left arm has been masked so that the arm could be painted over. This half-length version of the original photograph was printed in various formts including cartes-de-visite, all of which are known as La Dogaresse ("The Dog's Wife"). They show an anchor-shaped brooch pinned to the bow in the countess's hair, a reference to the Venetian coat of arms.
Pierre-Louis Pierson (French, 1822–1913)
