1765 Marie Loys after François Hubert Drouais (Louvre)

Properly, the title is "Portrait of Mme.Jacques-Benoit Loys, nee Marie Combe."

Photo - Gérard Blot.

Marie wears a lovely dress and wrap with seeming hectares of lace in this 1765 portrait that shows coiffures are climbing toward, but have not reached, monumental heights.
