    The most immediately noticeable difference in the presentation of both figures is the depiction of their facial expressions. Marie-Anne immediately attracts the viewer’s attention through her direct, outward gaze. Tiny spots of light in her eyes combine with the light pink tint of her cheeks to produce a radiance that complements her slight smile.
