Madame de Burman
Information about author
One can see a noblewoman in the interior of the palace, with the stone ornamented floor, column, lush drapery, desk, and baroque chair with red upholstery. She is dressed in a full velvet skirt, a red waistcoat with golden clasps, and a nobleman's headdress with a hanging fabric top. The waistcoat and headdress are decorated with dark fur. She is handing the letter to an elderly person; the man dressed in a kontusz bowed down. On the table next to the stationery there is a white sheet with the author's signature and the date, which was previously interpreted as 1735.
On the sheet lying on the table, there is the author's signature and date: Mde de Burman 1785.
