[Countess de Castiglione]

Vengeance (1863-1867)  When her husband, Count de Castiglione, threatened to take their son out of her care, the Countess sent him this hand-coloured photograph, which shows her grasping a dagger in her right hand. Matching the murderous look on her face, the portrait is entitled “Vengeance” and dedicated “Au comte de Castiglione/Reine d’Etrurie” (to the Count de Castiglione/ the Queen of Etruria).  The Count did not proceed with his plan.
