1770 Madame la duchesse de Chartres by Louis Carrogis (Musée Condé - Chantilly France)

Photo - René-Gabriel Ojéda; size doubled by gogm.

The Marquise reposes in a robe à l'anglaise with wide panniers suitable for the evening to read a book in daylight for this 1770 Carrogis portrait. Curls are small and vertical, but the height of the coiffure is increasing.
