Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun,
RMN Grand Palais

In the 1700s in France, Élisabeth Lousie Vigée Le Brun painted portraits of nobility, and, thanks to support from Marie Antoinette, her career flourished. Vigée Le Brun painted more than 30 portraits of the queen and her family but was ultimately forced to flee the country during the French Revolution. She lived and worked for some years in Italy, Austria, and Russia, where she continued painting portraits of the aristocracy. Her paintings were critically acclaimed in Rome, and she was elected to the Accademia di San Luca. Vigée Le Brun left a legacy of 660 portraits and 200 landscapes.
