Above identification from Alixa Naff, but Lauren Shive has identified the subject as her great-great-grandmother Layyah Alkazin Barakat, saying that Sultana Alkazin was Barakat's sister-in-law. An almost identical portrait from the same sitting was reproduced in Layyah Alkazin Barakat's book, "A Message from Mount Lebanon," 1912, before p. 143.
