Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot: 'Sketch of a Woman in Bridal Dress'

Explore the paintings

Tradition states that the figure is wearing bridal attire, but it has also been noted that she may be dressed for a ball. The picture can be linked with Corot's numerous images of solitary women in pensive attitudes. The sombre tonality and modelling of the face are reminiscent of Rembrandt.

The oval edge is perhaps intended to suggest the frame of a mirror.
