What a beautiful painting, I've never seen it before. Sooo neoclassical!

This is one of my favorite paintings at the Musée Carnavalet! It is small but the detail of it is like a fine gem stone! Looking at it up close you can't see any brush strokes.

@Victoria it really is! I love the details

@Andrew1860 that is one of my favorite museums! I do not remember seeing it when I was there, next time I will pay particular attention to it!

I've never seen it either. Is there a story behind it? The dress fabrics look luscious.

I can almost feel the cushy-ness of that floor pillow. We ought to bring those back in style.
