French School - Portrait of a Lady - Circa 1780

This elegant woman is dressed in the fashion of the time of Marie Antoinette. She is wearing a muslin "chemise à la reine", covered by a sage green silk hooded cape with Prussian blue lining and white fox fur border. Her cape falls off her shoulders and is held in place by a large Prussian blue satin bow. Her penetrating eyes observe us with a fixed gaze and expression of pride.
