Alexander Roslin - A Lady [1770s]
Alexander Roslin (Malmö, July 15, 1718 - Paris, July 5, 1793) was a Swedish portrait painter. He combined insightful psychological portrayal with a skillful representation of fabrics and jewels. He lived in France from 1752 until 1793, a period that spanned most of his career.
