Condition Report

The canvas is lined. The painting reads well, especially in the details of the costume, but the image is a little flat. Stable craquelure is scattered through out. Inspection under UV shows small spots of retouching to the neck, face, and background. What could be an old repair is in the fur at bottom left. Painting is offered framed.

Exhibited

Bagatelle, Palais du Domaine, Les modes, à travers trois siècles, 15 May - 15 July 1911, no. 59 (as Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Portrait of Mademoiselle Raucourt de la Cómedie-Française).

Catalogue Note

This oval painting derives from Greuze's rectangular Portrait of an actress datable to circa 1785 [1]. Based on its date of execution, it is likely that the original version of this painting depicts Françoise-Marie-Antoinette-Joseph Sauerotte, called Mademoiselle Raucourt (1756-1815).
