His magnificent portraits and sketches from nature make up a valuable part of the French artistic culture of the 19th century. One of the first Ingres was able to feel and convey not only the original look of many people of that time, but also the features of their characters - selfish calculation,
callousness, prozaism of personality among some, and kindness and spirituality in others. Embossed shape, impeccable figure, beauty of silhouettes determine the style of Ingres portraits. The accuracy of observation allows the artist to convey the manner and the specific gesture of each person. Engr did not consider the portrait genre worthy of this artist, although it was in the field of the portrait that he created his most significant works. With careful observation of nature and admiration for its perfect forms, the artist's luck is associated with the creation of a number of poetic female images.
