Portrait of a Young Woman in White

Jacques-Louis David, 1798

Portrait of a Young Woman in White, 1798 — Jacques-Louis David,

The young woman pictured here is unknown, and in fact, the artist of the work is also in question. Though distictly in the style of Jacques-Louis David, and of the appropriate age, the work can only be assumed to be from "the circle of Louis David" — meaning from the master himself, or from one of his numerous students and protégés.
