Female portrait circa about 1690s by French Painter Nicolas de Largillierre (1656 – 1746), portriatist and draftsperson
This is a beautiful portrait of a lovely young lady in period dress, standing in a wooded area which may be a forest or a large garden, possibly in the fall as evening approaches.
In the background we can see some green illumination, just off the left side of her face where we see green and yellow trees, as well as some orange trees.
On her right are severay more trees of similar color to the ones on her right as well as a large red tree; and these help frame her in the piece.
Her hair is a greyish white with large blue ribbons weaved though it and it flows down her right shoulder and behind her.
She is wearing a lace ruffled white blouse, an orange embroidered dress and a blue jacket with a platinum colored inner lining that complements the platinum colored sleeves that are embellished with floral patterns in orange, white and black.
