  1. She is gorgeous! I wish we knew more about this painting!

    But if we were doing yay or nay I would have to give it a nay - that headdress just isn't doing it for me!

  3. If we were doing yay or nay this would be a definite yay.
    There are so little paintings of men and women of african heritage during the 18th century. I'd definitely like to see more.
