These two full length studies are beautifully executed. I imagine
that they are preliminary studies for a later composition.
The attention to detail is fine, both provide an insight in to French
Haut Couture of the Late 18th Century.
Both bear old labels verso from Folio Fame Art London. One at £8-10
(shillings) the other £9.00 unframed at present but I am happy to quote
on professional framing.
