Woman Seated in a Plumed Hat,

Louis Rolland Trinquesse
French, 1746 - 1800
red chalk on laid paper
39.1 x 24.2 cm
Purchased 1975
National Gallery of Canada (no. 18386)

Trinquesse is best known for his red chalk drawings of elegant women. Three models posed for him, but in his works they are almost indistinguishable from one another. The artist's interest here is not in the particular features of the sitter, but in her extravagant dress, her languid pose, and the well-appointed interior of her apartment.
