Description: Louise Becq de Fouquières painting a portrait at an easel
pencil, pen and brown ink
8 3/4 x 6 3/4 in. (221 x 174 mm.)

Notes: Louise (1825-1892) was the sister of the painter Alfred Dedreux (see preceding lot) and married Aimé-Napoléon Becq de Fouquières, the husband of her deceased sister. She was a pupil of Isidore Pils, and exhibited pastel portraits and landscapes at the Salon from 1857 to 1880. She was close to Georges-Hippolyte Gericault, the natural son of Gericault, whom she nicknamed Théodore in her letters (see for example G. Bazin, Gericault, Paris, 1987, I, p. 125; cf. fig. 74 for a photograph of Louise). She was also the niece of Dedreux-Dorcy, Gericault's closest friend.
We are grateful for Bruno Chenique for identifying the sitter of the present drawing and for his help in cataloguing it.

No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 17.5% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis

Provenance: The artist's studio stamp (not in Lugt).

Artist or Maker: Isidore-Alexandre-Augustin Pils (Paris 1813-1875 Douarnenez)
