Virginia Oldoini better known as the Countess of Castiglione.
A precursor of the conceptual genre, claiming to be the most beautiful woman in the world, intriguing and seductive, she will spend fortunes making hundreds of photographs appearing in extravagant outfits.
she does not take the photo herself, but she directs the session, the set, the staging, her pose, her costumes, she decides everything. She retouches her photographs herself by painting directly on them.
