A lovely pair of portraits of a young French couple.  Well painted with delicacy to the faces, lace and earrings in particular.

 

They seem a very nice innocent young married couple.  Quite charming.  Very sadly, by repute, within a year of the paintings, the husband had been killed by a wild boar.

 

Both are signed lightly in red paint top left: H Legret, 1845
