Portrait of Adolphe-Marcellin Defresne, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres
Graphite pencil on paper, roughly 17×12 inches (43×29 cm). Original is in the Morgan Library and Museum.
Here is another of Ingres’s wonderful pencil portraits, with his trademark combination of exacting portraiture, and loose, almost casual rendering of the figure.
The Morgan Library’s page offers both a zoomable and downloadable version of the image, though the zoomable is a bit larger. Note the “full screen” icon at the right of the controls under the zoomable image.
See my previous Eye Candy post on Ingres’ pencil portrait of the subject’s wife: Mme Adolphe-Marcellin Defresne, née Sophie Leroy.
