Our view : 
In keeping with the reputation of Nicolas de Largillierre's workshop, our canvas bears witness to the particular attention paid to fabrics. The cape delicately draped over the noble lady's shoulders is a perfect example of this research into the textures and shine of clothing. This textile work combined with the delicacy of the face is characteristic of Nicolas de Largillierre's workshop. 
*Nicolas de Largillierre (1656-1746) was a great master of portraiture in France at the end of the reign of Louis XIV and the beginning of that of Louis XV. He trained first in Antwerp, then in England, where he spent six years working in Sir Peter Lely's studio. Through Lely, he learned the lesson of Van Dyck, and then introduced this teaching to the Parisian climate.
