Portrait of a Young Woman

Oil on panel, 70 x 54 cm
Private collection

The present work is a representative example of Dubordieu's sober and somewhat stiff style. It depicts a young lady at half-length, wearing an elaborate black silk dress with a white lace cuff, an impressive mill-stone collar and a white boogjesmuts bonnet. The identity of the sitter is not known, but her attire reveals her to be of high social rank.
