Portrait Wednesday: A miniature of a woman in a brown chemise gown

Portrait Wednesday: a day for sharing portraits of Marie Antoinette and her contemporaries.

This miniature portrait of a young woman by an unknown artist was last auctioned in 2004 by Bonhams. The woman is wearing a fashionable chemise gown in a color that isn't seen very often--a warm chestnut brown, complimented with a lace fichu and matching blue hair and waist ribbons.
