This wonderful portrait of a gentlewoman is full of symmetry and grace—as well as exciting visual rhymes. Note the triangular form of her hairstyle, echoed by the triangular shape of her white handkerchief. What's more, the hand-tinting is superb. Her cheeks flush with the same pink of her gown; her black lace mantilla, draped, also with a rather geometric flourish, adds striking tonal contrast.
Her earring add a flash of gold; her direct and probing glance is equally sharp.Please contact the gallery for a quote on shipping and insurance costs. If applicable, residents of New York will be charged sales tax. International clients will be responsible for their VAT.
