FRANÇOIS HUBERT DROUAIS | PORTRAIT OF THE COUNTESS DARIA CHERNYSHOVA - SALTYKOVA

François Hubert Drouais was a French portrait painter.His portraits have a gracious and artificial charm. He began his artistic education with his father, who was also the painter. 

His style strikes a balance between the old grandeur and imposing style of the Barque era and the endlessly flowing and decorative nature of the Rococo age to which he belonged. 

I love how deftly he writes lace. He pays a big attention to details, jewelry and face features. 

This painting you can find in The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, Russia. It was painted in 1762.
