Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki
1726 Danzig – Berlin 1801

A man, maybe the artist himself, shows a lady, who is sitting beside, a letter.

Pencil drawing, on handmade paper with watermark: TWB. 16:18 cm.

The drawing depicts a private scene, typical for the Rococo period. The lady is wearing an elegant, noble dress. The drawing is focused on the couple and the lady's dress. The many curved lines depicting the arrangement of the folds of the dress are giving the drawing a vivid and harmonic atmosphere.
