This painting described as Fine portrait of a young female artist, probably German, c.1800 is coming up for sale in Germany later this month. This is a copy of a known painting. Can you find the original? Should be rather easy for any lover of art!

No prizes, just for fun.

Update - Congratulations to Barthélémy Jobert who recognised this to be a copy of Vigée Le Brun's self portrait in the Uffizi. The guilloche frame on this one is rather beautiful.
