Oh, I love his apple green suit! Who is that next to him, in pink? Kitty Lou (Katherine Louise)

Madame de Brionne is a lovely woman. I always wondered who that was next to her.

I found the full painting, quite lovely. I googled Madame de Brionne, then looked at the second listing--there they are!
