"Portrait Of Woman. Period Around 1780."Portrait of a woman from the second half of the 18th century.
Light and delicate chromatic range in pastel tones: blue, gray .. typical of the end of Rococo - beginning of the Louis XVI style.
Oil painting on canvas.
The lady's dress has a wide neckline, the hairstyle gives the idea of naturalness and the studied spontaneity of the time when wigs were abandoned and we return to dresses with soft and natural lines in the old fashioned way.
Such low-cut clothes suggest that this painting may have originated as a reminder of a beloved woman, made to order by her lover or suitor.
The painting has been restored several times, the restoration on the canvas is visible in the photo taken from the side.
