Eye Candy for Today: Ingres graphite portrait

Portrait of Mme Adolphe-Marcellin Defresne, Jean-Aguste-Dominique Ingres
Portrait of Mme Adolphe-Marcellin Defresne, née Sophie Leroy, graphite drawing by Jean-Aguste-Dominique Ingres.

I love how casual the rest of the drawing seems compared to the carefully rendered face.

From the Morgan Library and Museum. More here.
