Etude du tableau de la dame de Charité

Jean Baptiste Raphaël Urbain Massard

This black and white engraving features a portrait of a young woman in a roundel in the upper portion of the print. The young woman’s face is shown in three-quarter profile. Her hair is pulled back and her head is partially covered in a hooded cloak that appears to be bordered with fur. In the lower register of the print there is an illustration framed by a decorative wreath. The illustration features a bedroom scene populated by several figures. A figure lies on the bed on the right of this image while several figures attend to the bed-ridden figure, including a woman whose costume mirrors that of the woman in the roundel above this image. In this image she is accompanied by a child whom she embraces as she gestures toward the figure on the bed.
