Elegant Looking at a Miniature Portrait #art

Michel Garnier, Elegant Looking at a Miniature Portrait. 18th century, oil on canvas. Sotheby's Paris.
Some Wednesday eye-candy. I am absolutely in love with this painting- I mean look at her shoes! That hair! That hat! 




I could go on, but this one really invites the viewer to step into the moment/period. Thank goodness for the Dutch influence on Garnier.  Click on the details below for larger images.
