Does anyone know who this man is? A suggestion by a friend was Emanuel of Salm-Salm but I have my doubts.

Does anyone know who this Princess Radziwill could be?

It is painted by the French painter Charles Chaplin in 1890 and the portrait is now hanging in the modern gallery in Palazzo Pitti in Florence...

The infamous Catherine Radziwill? She would've been about 32 in 1890.

It would've been a bit of a racy choice for a portrait painter. Chaplin was known for his nudes (some of them very lovely) but also some very erotic drawings such as Woman Performing Fellatio (which looked straight out of Penthouse!).

Some images of Catherine:

The Princess Radziwill shown above has a narrow face, small eyes and a small mouth, whereas Princess Catherine Radziwill has a stronger, broader face, large eyes and large mouth.  I don't think it is the same woman. Now I will have to go hunting for possible alternatives for the Princess.

If you find anything interesting,please post...

Bare in mind that there was always so called "painter's freedom" to paint people as he/she sees them,sometimes not the way they really looked...
