François Boucher (1703 - 1770)

STUDY OF A YOUNG WOMAN

This repetition in the form of chalk drawings or pastels of appealing figures and motifs from Boucher's paintings was a well established practice in his highly efficient studio, and in cases like this, where the artist clearly found the figure of particular charm and interest, the result is a drawing of extremely high quality.  Another equally outstanding and very comparable pastel study of this type by Boucher, based on the head of Venus in his 1766 painting, Venus Stepping out of the Water, is in a private collection.
