Painting - Digital Art Reproduction
Lady María Josefa Drummond, Condesa de Castelblanco c1716 by French Painter Jean-Baptiste Oudry (1688 - 1755); a Rococo period painter, engraver and tapestry designer.
This is a portrait of the noble lady María Josefa Drummond as Asteria (Goddess of falling stars, divinations and astrology) of Greek Mythology. She was the daughter of the Titans Coeus (Polus) and Phoebe and she was also the sister of Leto.
She is sitting in what appears to be a forest setting, wearing a lavish silver grey blue dress (which match her hair color) and wearing two wraps, the prominent one being rose in color and the other a teal green.
Across her chest is a blue-green sash, and the low cut portion of her dress is pined a red rose and a golden flower.
In her left hand is a gold staff and she is wearing a floral arrangement in her hair along with a large ruby and white pearl.
With her right hand she is petting little dog which is to the right of her and below the dog is what appears to be her family crest.
In the distant background we can a large tree with green leaves to her left and more trees to her right which are orange, brown and green; while in the blueish-green sky there are very dark clouds.
Side Note: This is a painting that is done after the artwork by Nicolas de Largillière called Portrait of a Woman as Astrea c1710-12; with the woman believed to be Mary Josephine Drummond, Condesa de Castelblanco.
