Painting oil on canvas, with dimensions of 64 x 50 cm without frame and 73 x 59 with frame, of French form and school depicting a seductive girl of the early eighteenth century.

During the eighteenth century the portrait is one of the most widespread genres in the wealthiest aristocracy, with a willingness to celebrate themselves in the immediate and in the future in the first place, with the addition of some self-referential details to show their guests their social status and above all their quirks. Fortunately, the end of '600 / beginning' 700 radically changed the concept of portraiture: the characters are no longer arrogantly distant and in almost unnatural plastic poses, they begin to reveal themselves, to show some intimate aspects of their personality, and show themselves eager to explain themselves and reveal themselves to posterity through their passions and their quirks cultivated in their free time.

The composition is very versatile and intelligently calibrated in the colors especially in those continuous contrasts between the very clear and dark parts, where the extraordinary versatility of the artist is evident thanks to a classic education due to the study of the great masters through the copy of plaster models and prints, both thanks to a passion for portraiture unrestrained, especially with great artistic sensitivity and color sweetness, able to make everything faster, more colorful and more ethereal. The subject of the canvas is a lovable girl who, looking dreamily, looks at her slightly winking future, dispersing her mind in an almost Arcadian world and far away from reality where we immediately perceive the overflowing personality of the artist, given from the strong coloristic impact on the canvas through a clear preference for drawing where both the richness of the details and a very methodical and rational arrangement of each individual character or object emerge.
