Nattier, Jean-Marc. 1685-1766

Portrait of a Woman in Grey

France, Early 18th century

Here we see the refinement and grace typical of the Rococo portrait, of which Nattier was a leading exponent. The artist chose his elegant, soft colours, dominated by the pearly-grey of the woman's dress, not on the basis of nature but in agreement with a decorative system very similar to that applied to Rococo interiors. This mysterious Woman in Grey is possibly Louise-Adelaide d'Orleans (1698-1743), daughter of the French Regent Philippe d'Orleans. She entered a convent in 1719.
