This one-of-a-kind unframed original pencil and ink drawing was created by New Orleans artist Emilie Rhys, from a photograph of the painting, on June 1, 2019 in the artist's French Quarter art studio.

The 1845 oil on canvas portrait of Louise de Broglie, Comtess d'Haussonville, by French Neoclassical artist Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres has long fascinated viewers for its profound beauty, and for the bizarre elongation of the right arm, leading to the impression of it being rather disembodied from the model.

There is a long history of artists turning for inspiration to the work of their predecessors, creating copies or interpretations of well-known masterworks.
