About

French (?) school circa 1770 Portrait of a Lady in a Tondo, red chalk on paper 20 x 29 cm Numbered 25 on the upper left Little holes in the bottom (intended for binding) It has been suggested that this beautiful drawing could be compared to the works by the hand of Angelica Kauffmann (1741-1807). The motive of a portrait into a tondo is quite characteristic but also the style is quite close to the one of this artist. But at this stage there is no clear evidence to assert this attribtion. It remains really interesting to compare our drawing to works by Kauffmann to judge of his own quallity. An other interesting fact is that the sheet was without doubt part of a sketchbook. The number 25 related to page number and the numerous very little holes in the bottom were the one made for binding. At that time sketchbooks were made of sheets that were sewn together.
