This portrait in the MANNER OF DANIEL GARDNER depicts the head of a young woman, pensively looking to the side. Her cerulean blue dress and white head-dress not only frame the face of the maiden artistically, but also suggest a festive occasion. The facile elegance and sketch-like nature of this study appear almost impressionist in style. Whilst the background of this image is sketched loosely enough to allow the canvas to peer through, the face of the woman is fully formed, a wonderful play of light and shade illuminating her translucent skin.
