Lot 27 Details

STUDIO OF FRANCOIS BOUCHER (FRENCH 1703 - 1770), YOUNG COUNTRY GIRL DANCING black, red and white chalk on greyish-buff 50.5cm x 36cm Framed and under glass Label verso: John Mathieson, Edinburgh Note: The 'original' image, now in the collection of the Ontario Gallery of Art, is the same height as this example, but is 6.5cm narrower and appears to have been trimmed. As a result, this one is better proportioned, but is ''coarser'' in its drawing, again indicating the hand of a student. The original spine fold of the sketch book from which it has been removed now appears as a horizontal crease. Boucher's pupils at the time of the creation of this image included David and Fragonard.

Estimate: £500 - £700
Hammer: Unsold
