"Study of a Girl in Red" by Benedetto Luti (1717) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "The sultry young model in red, her dark blond hair touched with butter-colored highlights, holds a picture or a mirror. With her direct glance, she is an unusually bold female type for Benedetto Luti."
