She's a milkmaid; she was painted in about 1780 by J.B. Greuze (1725-1805); and I just love the expression on her face. Have you ever seen quite such a summary of "Whatever"?

She's a perfect illustration of the truth that people really don't change much over the centuries. I found her on a postcard at a vide-grenier. The painting itself is in the Louvre.
