Surprising by its large size, this portrait is in the fashion of a 19th century where the portrait holds an important place in the bourgeois homes. On a background fleurdelise that suggests some old nobility, Fanny Caille draws the portrait of a girl with a complexion of milk whose neck is girded with a curious strawberry that is more ornamental than the element of dress. The strawberry, or collar had indeed held a large place in the clothing as well as masculine and feminine of the 16th century.
