Madame Vigée-Le Brun et sa fille, 1786 (Louvre Museum)

Self-portrait with her daughter Jeanne-Lucie (Julie) (1780-1819) by Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun.

Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun (1755–1842) is considered to be the most famous female painter of the 18th century.

next episode: more of Mme Lebrun


  1. It seems an animation, more than a steady image. Marvellous!

  2. Everything about it is beautiful.The loving smile on the mother's face, the daughter's coy glance, the tender way the mother is a holding her daughter. A remarkable piece of art.

  3. Self-portraits are always fascinating to me. This is a lovely painting. Thanks for introducing me to this amazing artist.
