Copy after François Boucher (French, 1703-1770)
Black chalk with stumping (in drapery) and wet work (hair and eyes) and red and white chalk, with blue chalk and traces of yellow chalk, Sheet: 35.9 x 28.9 cm (14 1/8 x 11 3/8 in.). Bequest of Muriel Butkin 2017.218
This chalk drawing originated from the studio of François Boucher. Although it bears Boucher’s signature—seen at lower right—the image was likely executed by a member of the master’s shop, rather than Boucher himself. Despite the anonymity of the draftsman, the image nonetheless reproduces one of Boucher’s designs and was therefore considered a work by the master.
