Natacha's Favorite Painting?

Over the years I began to notice the art in many of Natacha Rambova's images.  This one painting, as one of a set, appeared in several of her homes. Did it travel with her?

It appears to be one of a set of Chinese 19th century reverse paintings on glass called Églomisé.

The painting first appears on the right side of the door at the Valentino's Whitley Heights living room:

Here it is installed, as the set, in the library at the Hudnut Chateau at Juan les Pins:

Natacha poses in yet another setting with her favorite painting:

*The two ceramic heads on pedestals in the Whitley Heights image also appear in her home in Mallorca.
