Henri-Pierre Danloux (French, 1753–1809) Taking advantage of the medium's unsurpassed ability to capture spontaneity, Henri-Pierre Danloux caught the youth and vivacity of his young, unknown sitter with great freedom and expressiveness. Smiling with parted lips, the young woman exhibits her elegant profile and bright eyes. An exuberant, soft mane of hair; a wide wreath of a stiffened, ruffled collar; and a lively striped sleeve and bodice surround her smooth, meticulously finished and delicately modeled face. An artfully disarrayed ribbon catches the rich black chalk curlicues of hair. Interspersed with the brilliant white paper, the softly modulated applications of gray wash underneath the hair and costume create a sense of glowing from within her young, clear skin.

Danloux was as interested in capturing the young woman's inner world of thought and feeling as he was in representing her outward appearance. Her intense forward gaze hints at a strong personality. He may have made this portrait as one of a series of family portraits.
