Story

<p>A master at capturing sitters in fleeting moments of informality, Jean-Étienne Liotard depicted this unknown sitter possessed with a remarkable degree of warmth and depth. <br /><br> The young woman probably came from the Caribbean and, somehow, found her way to Amsterdam in the mid-18th century. <br /> <br> Either she herself commissioned the pastel portrait, pastel was quite popular in the 18th-century, or an artist was taken with her for many of the same reasons we find her so engaging and decided to make this lovely work. <br> <br> Her beautiful pearl necklace and delicate tignon are quite reminiscent of the famous Girl With A Pearl Earring. </p>
