This work, painted about 1865–67 on a piece of scrap board, is exceptional in Boudin's oeuvre for its spontaneity and for its identifiable subject, Princess Metternich, the wife of the Austrian ambassador to the court of Napoleon III. The princess, ubiquitous in fashionable society, was famous for her fine clothes and quick wit. She once referred to herself as "the best-dressed monkey in Paris."
