A silhouette is a view of an object or scene consisting of the outline and a featureless interior. The word is also an eponym. The term comes from Etienne de Silhouette, a finance minister of Louis XV who in 1759 imposed such harsh economic demands upon the French people that his name became synonymous with anything done or made cheaply.
