(17551842)

Vigée-Lebrun Elizabeth(17551842)

One of the most prolific and popular artists of her day, Elizabeth Vigee-Lebrun served as portraitist to Marie-Antoinette, a close friend. She was much sought after by the aristocracy of France for her portrait work. As a Royalist, she fled France at the outset of the revolution. She lived in exile for twelve years, and finally returned to France under the rule of Napoleon. While traveling around Europe in exile, she became a member of the Academies of Rome, Florence, Bologna, St. Petersburg, and Berlin. Her body of work includes over 600 portraits, including a self portrait, 200 landscape sketches, and 15 large compositions.
