Fashion Friday

Portrait of the artist's daughter - François Boucher 1760


This lovely young girl has flowers in her tight coiffure, and a large bow tied around her throat. Her gown is fairly plain, aside from the pink ribbons cross her stomacher, but she is wearing a lovely shawl. The bird perched on her finger is likely to show her to better advantage. Paintings often included things of interest to the person being painted to relay a bit of their personality (at least the personality they wanted to put forth).

What do you think of her fashion sense?
