ca. 1706 Femme et ses enfants (Madame de Jassaud et ses enfants) and older woman by follower of Nicolas de Largillière (Galerie Pellat de Villedon - Versailles, Île-de-France France)


Based on a paper by George De Lastic, no longer accessible, this pair could date to around 1706. The sleeves with rolled back lined cuffs are right for that time as are the split bodices. Mme. Jassaud's sleeves end with lace cuffs or engageantes and both wear what could be full skirts. The Web site art finding dates this to ca. 1723, "Epoque fin de la régence, début Louis XV”.
