The girls have arrived! The quality is quite excellent. The faces are slightly different to the original Veronese version (centre bottom.) These have a more noticeably 18th century feel, especially the girl to the left. One can easily make out the François Boucher influence in her features. The dresses are beautifully done. I’m wondering if the background was originally as dark as it is now, or if it was blue grey as was Veronese’s intent.
