This is one of several pictures, variously dated between 1757-69, acquired from the descendants of the Journu family, which lived in and around Bordeaux and for whom Perronneau worked extensively.

A later inscription on the back of the portrait identifies the sitter as “ Legrix née d’Hegar.” It is one of a small group of eighteenth-century pastels in the Collection.
