Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta - Going to the Ball

The subject in today's painting is going to have a spectacular time at the ball. Spanish painter Raimundo de Madrazo y Garreta supplies a wonderful portrait of a masked attendee, brimming with enthusiasm and energy. I love the accompaniment of her playful smile as she peers through her green diguise. Mischief is on her agenda, if that's what you seeking. Either keep your distance or introduce yourself with the understanding that she might have some surprises in store for you.

Or perhaps I'm presuming too much based on appearance. After all, while wearing such a mask, one hardly comes across as wholesome.
