Elizabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun: 'Mademoiselle Brongniart'

Explore the paintings

Alexandrine-Emilie (1780 - 1847) was the daughter of the architect Alexandre-Theodore Brongniart. Brogniart was a friend of the artist who briefly took refuge in his Paris house during the turbulent autumn of 1789.

The apparent age of the sitter suggests that the picture dates from the late 1780s and it seems to be that exhibited at the Salon of 1789.
