The girl with the garland of flowers. Important Portrait of feet, representing in the foreground a young girl of quality weaving a garland of flowers with the help of a ribbon in an idyllic setting; the terrace of a park. In the background, we notice a Medici vase overflowing with multicolored roses heralding the stylistic evolution of the neoclassime moment. Oil on canvas from the second part of the 18th century around 1770 - 1780. It should be noted that the canvas was cleaned and re-lined on its frame then repositioned in its frame. Dimensions: Height 1.44cm, Width 1.19cm. For the record, the sartorial trend in vogue during the carefree years 1770 - 1780 allows us to refine the dating of this table. Indeed the main subject of this work, the young girl is dressed in a so-called English dress accompanied by a corset! A true feminist revolution for the time. Indeed, the sacrosanct whalebone body yet so popular with the label is shattered. It is replaced in all social categories by the corset, more flexible, which was already worn by the women of the people. A philosophical and medical debate is launched about this piece of clothing essential to the maintenance of this fragile being that is the woman, a subject which will not fail to cause much ink to flow during the following century
