Romantic French and English Paintings of women of the late 1700's Ladies of the 18th century from antique postcards and prints

 Romantic portraits of 18th century ladies. Elegant and well dressed they are most certainly women of leisure in the late 1700's.  These lovely paintings are from antique postcards and prints. If they are paintings of real individuals or just the artist imagination I can not say. The large powdered hair arrangements seem very French and maybe contemporaries of Marie Antoinette. The top two are my favorites.









 Hope you enjoyed your visit and please come again.
 Much love to you all, Louise

I am overwhelmed! Thank you so so so very much Louise! I went back to some of your old posts, and found MANY fantastic pictures, as well. I especially love the beautiful Geisha with mums in her arms and hair! I'm so excited to have these - I also love the sewing pictures.
Can't say thank you enough :)

I was saying that the top portrait is Gwendolyn Sinclair - a Canadian woman.

So glad to hear from you again! I looked for Gwendolyn Sinclair online
and sure enough it is the same portrait. Some sources say she is a fictional character. Whether she is fact or fiction it is still an interesting story!
