Archduchess Maria Amalia of Austria by John Zoffany.
Undated, but my guess is late 1780s based on that amazing hat.
(Hat tip to Heileen for finding this one! http://pinterest.com/pin/145663369167667196/)
Unknown Woman, Possibly of the Stuyvesant Family by Unknown, 17th Century. Via the New York Historical Society (Click for more details about the portrait).
A good example of some of the HOLY WHOAFUS headwear of the 17th Century.

In order to facilitate his work, Phillips developed a formula for his portraits but then imaginatively individualized each one. Here, the artist’s masterful design abilities are evident in the cleanly contained forms of the mother and child, enriched by the use of brilliant saturated color and careful detail. The sitters are probably from Litchfield County, Connecticut, or Dutchess County, New York.
The Most Epic of all the Epic Caps of the world!

Portrait silhouette on glass by Mrs. Isabella Beetham, c.1790s (V&A)
Not only is this silhouette GORGEOUS, but look at her excellent hat. It reminds me a lot of this one.

Empress Maria Theresa of Austria by Jean-Étienne Liotard, ca 1760
Not sure what I think of the dress but that is one neat cap
Jacques Louis David
Portrait of Emilie Seriziat
One of my all-time favorite portraits. David captured the fabric so beautifully, and of course I love her hat!

Such complicated, intricate work! This is a masterpiece! I’d love to see it on a person.

What a sweet little hat! I love the subtle lace peeking out along the brim!

The sitter isn’t very pretty, but the dress is interesting. I like the idea of a black stomacher trimmed in lace on a blue bodice.
GORGEOUS cap! The lace is so stiffened it almost gives it a bonnet appearance. And I think it is the top of a pinner apron and not a stomacher, since it looks like the skirt of the apron is sitting in her lap and stomachers almost always go under the front closures, though pinner aprons are pretty unusual!

Now this is a hat you want to wear on a hot summer day!
Tan silk bonnet, 1840s.
The pleated trim is a very nice touch!
