This painting was inspired by a photograph of the Countess of Castiglione. If you’re never heard of her, read about her here! She was an Italian aristocrat, famous for her obsession with photography of herself. She sat for over 700 photographs in elaborate costumes and settings, and was a very intriguing woman.
