These six photographs come from the collection of photographs of the countess assembled by Robert de Montesquiou after her death. Primarily small versions of larger photographs that have been given borders and painted in gouache by various artists, they are excellent examples of the skill of the professional miniaturists attached to the important studios of the Second Empire.
