...because beautiful women come in all shapes and sizes...
French ambassador's wife in Oriental Costume.
Annette Comtesse de Vergennes, in Oriental Costume. Antoine de Favray, 18th century
Wikipedia recomends this lovely portrait of a French ambassador's wife, again in Oriental costume. The first thing that catches my attention is her creamy skin and pearl jewelry, but I soon notice the round waist... and then the foreshortened leg and slipper peeking from under her dress! An ambiguous portrait and the composure implies disarray, but beautiful nonetheless.
