A clever and astute friend has informed me that the portrait which provoked such emotion in me was done by Peter Lely who painted it sometime in the mid 17th century. Bravo et Auguri Elisabetta a Parigi!
(a web site informs me that auguri also means chestnuts in japanese)

so here is a haiku for you Elisabetta:

Bowing to the storm
The reverent
