Portrait of an Elegant Lady
Pastel on paper signed and dated "1854" on the right

H:58,5 cm ; W: 48,5 cm (at sight)

NOTES:

A sensitive and precise material, sometimes compared to the powder covering the wings of butterflies, pastel is complex to master. However, the artist of this work, who has remained anonymous, demonstrates all his skill in using it in this charming and very fine portrait of an elegant woman. Moreover, this pretty painting bears witness to a genre of portraiture that was very much in vogue during the Second Empire, and that the advent of photography would eclipse over the years.
