Lady Reading in an Interior (1795-1800) by Marguerite Gérard (b. 1761. Grasse, d. 1837, Paris).
Gérard specialized in domestic genre scenes, often depicting an idealized vision of the lives of bourgeois and upper class women. Usually depicted in intimate settings, her subjects enjoy lives of leisure with their families or engage in elegant pastimes. Her meticulous style derived from her study of the works of Dutch 17th-century masters such as Gabriel Metsu and Caspar Netscher.
