Oil on canvas; 76 x 64 cm
This portrait, one of Gainsborough's most successful paintings, is the artist's only work in the Hermitage. The refined tonal combinations and the particular of painting - applying very fluid paints in a semi-transparent layer, his rapid strokes made with a fine brush - emphasize the nobility and elegance of the image of the young woman.
