Curiosity:
Marc Restellini extract from a report by him will give a deeper comprehension of the private expert way of working:

marcrestellini

Translation:
The ears: When they are left exposed in female portraits (rare), they are not detailed. Even in the portraits of men, they are not the object of so much detail.

--------------------------------

Exactly the opposite to this case, the ear, even if just a part, is full in details, as detailed as the eyes or the nose or the mouth.

There is an almost identical image published by Parisot and Lanthemann (once Lanthemann was dead) of the same painting:

The painting can be seen in the Guillaume office reconstruction at the Luxembourg museum in Paris:
