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 ears are full in details, as detailed as the eyes or the hair...

The painting is probably the small face sketch for a bigger composition known as Marie Feret (the servant girl):
