Many of Carmontelle's portraits are valuable both as aesthetic and historical documents, depicting a wide cross-section of late-eighteenth-century Parisian society. In addition to the present drawing, the artist made at least two other versions of this subject. One, a somewhat larger and less finished study, is in a private collection in Switzerland, while another remains with the sitter's family. The latter version confirms that the subject is Jeanne de Castellane-Mazaugues, who married the Marquis de Pontèves Castellane in 1778.
