Ecole Française du XVIIIe - Femme à la rose
Óleo sobre lienzo - Sin firmar

French School of the 18th century. Portrait, ‘Femme à la rose’ (woman with rose).
Expertized by auctioneers.
Oil on canvas from 1699.
French School of the 18th century.
Painting backed on linen, unknown author.
Estate on the back.
Settlement of the estate of Frédéric De May De Fontafret 1892.
Genealogical document, death date ‘web archives estate’ included in the pictures.
Artwork with very light pictorial retouches only on the lace of a section of the sleeve as well as
some lace fringes on the bodice.
(The retouches are visible and do not interfere with the authenticity of the artwork).
Please note and compare the sensitivity and delicacy of the face, the pose which was not customary during the reign of Louis XIV.
Nothing is strictly determined and rigid here.
Finesse of a simple, natural woman portrait full of charm. Rare and contrary to the rigid uses of the time.
In order to smile and to be more permeated with this period, I am adding a little anecdote of the year following the creation of this painting (in 1700 ). It is about Sir De May De Fontafret and his father-in-law, who had to face the law.
Please read the last picture.
Have a good visit.
