Catalogue Note

This high quality pastel portrait is almost identical to the Portrait of a Young Woman with Lace in her Hair and a Bow at her Throat sold as attributed to François Boucher at Sotheby's London in 1999.1  The presence of this second version, which differes slightly in the absence of the beauty spot and having instead a bow around her neck, suggests the existence of an original portrait by Boucher of which these are surviving copies. 

We are grateful to Alastair Laing for his assistance in the cataloguing of this lot.

1. Sotheby's London, 14 April 1999, lot 53.
