This elegant late eighteenth-century portrait depicts a young lady in a blue dress. She is depicted with her hair partially tied using a pearl broach in an up-style fashion with loose curls that frame her face. The artist has painted with a focus on blue undertones and visible stippling to model her face. Particular attention is brought to her charming blue eyes that are delicately highlighted by touches of white paint. The portrait is set within its original gold clasp bracelet mount.
