Fedor Stepanovich Rokotov was a Russian portrait painter.
Unknown woman, 1770s. This is my favourite of his portraits. I love the hair and the hooded dress, which I believe is of the polonaise cut, based on similar dresses seen in this 1772 portrait of Queen Charlotte by Jeremiah Meyer, this 1770s portrait of Mme Séguier by P.A. Hall, this 1776 portrait of Madame Aignan de Sanlot by Vigée LeBrun and this 1778 fashion plate. I’d like to make one of these hooded polonaise robes someday.
