GREUZE, Jean-Baptiste
(b. 1725, Turns, d. 1805, Paris)

Portrait of a Young Woman with White Headscarf

Oil on canvas, 49 x 41 cm
Private collection

The expressive head exercises of girls and boys by Greuze were quite popular and became one of the painter's specialties. With the face leaning to the left and a pensive look, the girl in the present painting seems deep in thought.
