Vintage Framed Italian Silk Self Portrait by Vigée Le Brun (11718)
This beautiful vintage print on silk was made in Italy.
The portrait is of the Artist, Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, with Her Daughter Julie (à l’Antique), 1789. Elisabeth was a French portrait painter in the late 18th century--breaking ground as a female painter in a male dominated art world.
Ornate brass frame with hook for hanging, and a felt backing.
Measures 225mm high x 160mm.
In lovely condition; there are some dent lines on part of the silk surface--which may be able to be lifted out by holding over gentle steam.
