A cabinet portrait of the Russian Princess Zinaida Nikolayevna Yusupova (1891-1939). Inscribed (Signed?) in French.
Princess Zinaida Nikolayevna Yusupova (Russian: Зинаида Николаевна Юсупова) 2 September 1861 – 24 November 1939) was an Imperial Russian noblewoman, the only heiress of Russia's largest private fortune of her time. Famed for her beauty and the lavishness of her hospitality, she was a leading figure in pre-Revolutionary Russian society. In 1882, she married Count Felix Felixovich Sumarokov-Elston, who served briefly as General Governor of Moscow (1914–1915). Zinaida is best known as the mother of Prince Felix Yusupov, the murderer of Rasputin. She escaped revolutionary Russia and spent her remaining years living in exile.
