#portraitchallenge: elvire de brissac

Thursday's #PortraitChallenge, over at StudioTeaBreak on Twitter, was Bernard Boutet de Monvel's oil painting of young Elvire de Brissac from 1946. She reminds me so much of my little sister at that age.



Here's the original. I came across it on a Sotheby's website and it's a lovely litle picture. The girl, Elvire, went on to be a novelist (but I haven't had a chance to explore what exactly she's written - saving that for a rainy day). You can see lots of other interpretations over at @StudioTeaBreak here.
