Description

By Joseph Baillio, Katharine Baetjer, and Paul Lang

Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun (1755–1842) was one of the finest eighteenth-century French painters and among the most important women artists of all time. Celebrated for her expressive portraits of French royalty and aristocracy—especially of her patron, Marie Antoinette—Vigée Le Brun exemplified success and resourcefulness in an age when women were rarely allowed either.

This handsome volume follows the fascinating life of Vigée Le Brun, portraying a talented artist who nimbly negotiated a shifting political and geographic landscape. Essays by international scholars illuminate ninety paintings and pastels that attest to Vigée Le Brun's superb sense of color and expression. A chronology of her life and a map of her travels after exile from Revolutionary France accompany the text, elucidating the journeys of this remarkable, independent painter.
