1774 Mademoiselle de Mercy, de Villiers-Cotterets by Louis Carrogis (Musée Condé - Chantilly France)

Photo - René-Gabriel Ojéda; image size increased by half by gogm.

Compare this Carrogis to his 1770 portrait of the Duchess of Chartres - the character of the coiffure has radically changed. Small vertical curls are out, replaced by seeming masses of straight hair with some wound in large curls, while the height of the coiffure and cap/headdress has almost doubled.

Keywords:  1774, Carrogis, French, high straight coiffure, ribboned cap, revers, bows, tight upper puffed sleeves, panniers, under-skirt, ruffles, shoes, fan, robe à la française
