Champenois, Paris "Once again we have a slender young lady in a gracefully draped pose, her head encircled by a halo which in this case has circles within it to reinforce the circular motif. This time, the hair is entirely orderly and hangs down in a single thick strand, but that is because it has the function to lead our eyes to the tabouret in the foreground which holds the bottle (Rennert/Weill, p. 134).
