The merry marquise

19 March 2010

To celebrate WordPress and Sky sorting out their tedious differences and my blog working perfectly again, here is a lovely portrait of the Marquise de Grécourt by Jean-Laurent Mosnier. Madame de Grécourt was painted in around 1790 in a very fetching russet and forest green velvet ensemble with a crisp muslin fichu arranged over her shoulders.

I just love the ‘Because I’m worth it’ tilt of her head.
