Two indian girls by Louis-Jean-François Lagrenée
Our painting shows two young Indian women wearing pleated dresses. The young woman on the left, with brown hair held in a chignon, has her head encircled by a blue ribbon that harmonizes with the red of the belt of her dress. These two primary colours form a delicate contrast with the pearly white of her clothing. We find, on the left, these two women in the large painting conserved at the Dijon Hôtel de Ville.
