Lemoine was famous for his black chalk portraits like this example of a bust of a nude girl. Given the sitter’s individualized features, this image could represent a specific portrait; however, her identity is now lost to modern viewers. Below the portrait on the blue oval mount, the artist signed and dated the work to indicate his authorship.
