Madame Pompadour by Rosalba Carriera (location unknown to gogm)


I don't know where LIFE found this. The poster at notmodernart wrote, "Portrait of Madame de Pompadour


Rosalba Carriera


I needs to know more about this work! Anyone know who owns it? The date? Anything?"

The Marquise de Pompadour is portrayed wearing square necklines, but this could be a scoop neckline. She certainly wears enough flowers.
