A Muse (ca. 1725). Rosalba Carriera (Italian, 1675-1757). Pastel on laid blue paper.  Carriera rendered the porcelain skin, flushed cheeks, and wavy hair with subtly blended pastel colors, creating a soft, velvety surface. This delicate head crowned by soft curls and an ivy wreath was one of many idealized images Carriera made called teste di fantasia —a kind of fanciful rendering of a beautiful woman with a mythological or allegorical appearance.
