These were some of Marie Antoinette's most famous portraits. Elisabeth Lebrun exhibited the first in the salon of 1783, then hastily remade the same scene with the same pose in a formal muslin dress. The first portrait made straw hats à la mode in France.

This portrait was controversial when first exhibited, partially due to de Calonne's own bad rep as Louis XVI's financial minister at the time.

The original scan of this was massive. 13,000+ by 8000+ pixels and 81mb large. I had to procedurally downsize it to reach the dumb limits on the "high res" board.

One of Le Brun's dearest friends
>>
Louise of Baden was widely described by those who saw her as being the most beautiful woman they ever saw.

"we were walking across a portion of the park, when, at a ground-floor window, I espied a young person who was watering a pot of pansies. She was seventeen years old at most; her features were well formed and regular, her face a perfect oval; her fine complexion was not bright, but was of a paleness completely in harmony with the expression of her countenance, whose sweetness was angelic. Her fair hair floated over her neck and forehead. She was clad in a white tunic, a carelessly knotted girdle surrounding a waist as slender and supple as a nymph's. As I have described her, so ravishingly did this young person stand out against the background of her apartment, adorned with pillars and draped in pink and silver gauze, that I exclaimed, "That is Psyche!" It was Princess Elisabeth, the wife of Alexander. She addressed me, and kept me long enough to tell me a thousand flattering things. She then added, "We have wanted you here for a long time, Mme. Lebrun - so much so that I have sometimes dreamed you had already come." I parted from her with regret, and have always preserved a memory of that charming vision."

It's worth noting the head in this painting had been daudled over some time after Mme. Le Brun had made it. Mme du Barry never wore rouge.
>>4475201
This portrait was only partially finished when du Barry was alive, and the draft was preserved by an associate of du Barry who gave it to Le Brun years later when she returned to France, then she completed it.

Both some of my favorite portraits of Lady Hamilton. George Romney supposedly painted her over 70 times, and went insane after he could see her no more.

"..Although she was obliged to use her legal name of Amy Lyon on the marriage register, the wedding gave her the title Lady Hamilton which she would use for the rest of her life. Hamilton's public career was now at its height and during their visit he was inducted into the Privy Council. Shortly after the ceremony, Romney painted his last portrait of Emma from life, The Ambassadress, after which he plunged into a deep depression and drew a series of frenzied sketches of Emma." (Wikipedia)

My favourite portrait of her, however, had to be Elisabeth Vigee's portrait of her as a Bacchante >>4473704 (and the other beautiful portrait of her as Ariadne, I can't find a high resolution scan of it).

"..... I had just finished the first sitting, when I saw Sir William Hamilton, the English ambassador in Naples, at the door, he requested that my first portrait in the town might be that of an exceptionally beautiful woman whom he introduced to me as Mme Hart, his mistress; she later became Lady Hamilton, and her beauty brought her great fame. Having already promised my kind neighbours, I did not want to begin this portrait until that of the Countess Scavronsky was fairly advanced. At the same time I painted another portrait of Lord Bristol, whom I encountered once again in Naples. It could be said that this man spent his entire life on Vesuvius for he climbed up the volcano every day. I painted Mme Hart as a bacchante, reposing by the side of t he sea holding a cup in her hand. Her beautiful face was very lively and formed a strong contrast with that of the Countess; she had an enormous quantity of fine chestnut hair which could cover her body completely, so she looked wonderful as a bacchante with her hair spread out."

the artist is pretty bad with perspective and geometry, but the subject more than makes up for it - ladies' riding habits are so dashing and beautiful, probably because they mix male and female fashion. and the fact they're unbuttoned to reveal her cleavage is such a racy and dashing pose. The embroidered felt tricorn, powdered wig (or is it just her powdered hair) and green riding jacket with gold embroidery speak elegance. But the huge necktie looks awful in my opinion.

Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed this portrait immensely.

Masterpiece. It's amazing how long it took for European art to curve back to the level of the old masters.

It's amazing how utterly unsexy and undesirable she is.

She's pretty attractive though. despite her large forehead.
Many contemporaries commented that she looked much more attractive than her sister (queen of Naples).
