Bust of a Veiled Woman (Corradini, ~1720)
From the collections of the Museo del Settecento Veneziano, Ca’ Rezzonico, Venice. This represents superb technical skill on the part of the artist, but I'm embarrassed to admit that my first impression on viewing it is that it looks not like a "veiled" woman, but like a "slimed" woman.
