A Lady and a Gentleman in a Landscape by Benjamin Wilson, 1780s
J’adore cette peinture! I’m stunned by this satin perfection that lacks many of the frou-frou decorations of other eighteenth century dresses and retains a simple, unmitigated elegance. And I just so happen to have some cornflower satin on hand..don’t mind if I do!
