Graceful French 18th Century Portrait Of a Young Woman


Graceful 18th Century Young Woman Chalk and Charcoal Drawing

This beautiful representation of a young woman is directly taken from the design left by Francois BOUCHER.
The Portrait shows a lovely lady, her head slightly bent in reflection with a lovely infused by the excellent strokes of the highlighting white touches of chalk and the light red chalk tones.
The lovely piece has a cartouche for François BOUCHER, 1703/1770, however this is surely a ‘School of’ Boucher and not the master himself.
It remains an absolutely gorgeous piece.
The Frame is lovely, simply done with gilt wood.
A lovely Find!

The Drawing measures 7.61 inches by 5.31 inches
It was purchased in Paris in September 2018.
