This is one of several pictures, variously dated between 1757-69, acquired from the descendants of the Journu family, which lived in and around Bordeaux and for whom Perronneau worked extensively. A later inscription on the back of the portrait identifies the sitter as “M.me Legrix née d’Hegar.” It is one of a small group of 18th-century pastels in the collection.
