Circle of Pierre Mignard (1612-1695)
Saying about a painting that she was executed by "the entourage of Pierre Mignard" indicates that the painting was painted by an artist trained around Mignard, not by the master directly, but perhaps by one of His students.
Regarding the attribution, we found 3 paintings by Pierre Mignard 1612-1695, they are all 3 in the museum Grobet Labadié in Marseille.
We find the same technique, be it at the level of the posture, the look, but especially the treatment of light.
The frames to some details are substantially the same as ours.
