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

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 is full in details, as detailed as the eyes or the hair...
