About

An oil on panel painting by Old Master artist Jean-Baptiste Greuze. "Portrait of Jeanne Philiberte Ledoux (1767–1840), half-length" is executed in lush skin tones and blues and depicts the portrait of Jeanne Philberte Ledoux, her pale skin glowing, her cheek resting gently on her left hand. The sitter, Jeanne Philiberte Ledoux, was a student of Greuze and a successful artist herself. She exhibited portraits and miniatures in the Paris Salons. As student of Greuze, it is interesting that the sitter holds a laurel wreath which has traditionally been used as a symbol of graduation and success. Provenance: E.
