A variant miniature by Sicardi, part of the Doistau bequest to the Louvre (inv. RF 5093), shows the sitter in identical clothes and attire, but with her hand resting on a bouquet of flowers and not on a red cockaded tricorn hat. In both works the sitter is depicted breaking into a smile, which is unusual for this period.
This superb miniature is in very good order. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
