This very high quality canvas dates from the middle to the end of the 19th century.
It has a trace of a signature in the upper right corner.
This beautiful vegetable seller is painted on a background of black and brown. The whiteness of her face is accentuated by the red scarf she wears over her shoulders.
Her pose is lascivious, one hand on a hip, the second grabbing a fruit.
Her gaze flees from the viewer, she seems lost far from the display, a slight smile on her lips.
Great attention is paid to details: her earrings, her ring...as well as the fruits and vegetables.
All the codes of the portraits reserved until now to the aristocracy, are employed: the size of the painting, the pose of the model, the simplicity and the meticulousness of the details.
The woman of the people becomes the equal of the aristocrat.
