Lovely XIX Century Pastel Drawing Of A Young Woman.
A delicate and well executed Pastel Drawing of a Young Woman in 18th Century Cloth.
The Study is done in Pastel and Gouache Paint, and shows what seems to be a young ‘soubrette’ or personal maid.
Daintily dressed with a lovely headdress decorated with ribbons she gazes at her hand.
The only indication as to her job, being the broom she holds in her right hand.
The drawing is well executed with a perfect use of the light and fine strokes of color.
A charming piece!

The Frame is 18.11 inches wide 21.25 inches high
The piece was acquired in Toulon in February 2018.
The Frame is early 20th century and I very good condition.
