Probably dedicated to Beatrix de Choiseul-Stainville (1730 Lunéville - April 17, 1794 Paris), Duchesse de Gramont, who died on the guillotine. She was portraited by Alexander Roslin.

Alternative is Marie-Gabrielle de Sinéty (1760 - April 24, 1832 Château de Caderousse), who married André Joseph Hippolyte de Gramont-Vacheres, Duc de Gramont-Caderousse in February 1779. Her Portrait was painted by Vigée le Brun.
