(b. 1725, Tournus, d. 1805, Paris)
Bust of Young Woman (La Reveuse)1760s
Oil on canvas, 46 x 38 cm
The subject of a young woman depicted partially undressed, with her breasts exposed, is typical of Greuze's unique mixture of voluptuousness and dreamy reflection that he first developed circa 1765, and subsequently repeated on numerous occasions through a wide range of variants.
