Post Reidentified portrait
Earlier in the fall, Catherine Delors had this post about a portrait that had been long identified as La Reine:

I'm glad someone took the time to re-evalute this portrait!

"So this might be Mme Sophie, then aged 42"- in case it's true, she looks relatively good! It contradicts the fact that she was the ugliest of four sisters... I read it somewhere.
Thank you for sharing this interesting post!

I read it somewhere... of course, it is well known that these princesses were not beauties... but Sophie, poor girl, is the least attractive.
