Catalogue Note

This charming portrait, executed in an unusual and highly attractive combination of coloured chalks, is a rarity within Huet's graphic oeuvre, which is predominantly comprised of pastoral landscapes and studies of animals.  It is drawn with a high degree of finish and signed upper right which suggests this was a work in its own right rather than preparatory for one of his larger painted compositions.  It is highly reminiscent of François Boucher's depictions of attractive young woman and it is most likely that Huët was directly inspired here by the great Rococo artist's work.
