A well executed pastel portrait on parchment depicting a mid-aged woman, most probably French.
The subtlety of the colours and the details suggest the work of a skilled drawer.
The Parchment, due to its organic nature, has shrunk a bit on the lower left corner however without altering the pleasantness of the composition (it is hardly visible). On the contrary the colours are extremely vivid and well preserved.
It comes in an original, good conditions, Louis XVI frame and bears on the back of the drawing an old inventory number.
