In this attractive portrait painted c.1720 a young lady is seated in an Arcadian landscape. The mythical land of Arcadia was a place where love and happiness reigned and was a fashionable setting for portraiture and literature. This young lady conveys a sense of calm and serenity as she looks confidently at the viewer. An enchanting and attractive image.
