Detail studies were common in the 18th century as preliminary stages towards the finished painting. Here you can see a detail study and inspect the painting for which it was used.
As a preliminary study for his portrait of the countess Anna Joachima Danneskiold-Laurvigen the artist Jens Juel created a detail study of the countess’ right hand.
The detail study appears on the right-hand side of the screen.
Jens Juel subsequently incorporated the detail study in the finished painting, which is shown below.
