Young Lady in a Sheer White Dress c. 1805 Artist: William M.S. Doyle (American, 1769-1828) watercolor on ivory The flimsy dress without undergarments would not have been able to support the pin. Perhaps the pin was a love token from a gentleman for whom this portrait was painted. The sitter may not have dressed this way in public but she may have had her portrait made wearing a daring dress sans undergarments as a present for a favorite gentleman. Yale University Art Gallery
