19TH C FRENCH HAND PAINTING of PRINCESS LAMBALLE
Princess Lambelle: Maria Luisa of Savoy (Maria Teresa Luisa; 8th September 1749 – 3rd September 1792) was a member of the House of Savoy. She was married at the age of sixteen to Louis Alexandre de Bourbon, the greatest heir of France. After her marriage, which lasted a year, she returned to court and became the confidante of Queen Marie Antoinette. Her death in the massacres of September 1792 during the French Revolution sparked a movement of anti-revolutionary propaganda, which ultimately led to the development and implementation of the Reign of Terror.
Among the thousands murdered during the French Revolution, one of the most notorious cases was that of the death of the Princess de Lamballe, friend of Queen Marie-Antoinette. Such a Horrific ending for such a kind and Loving lady!
This is a piece acquired from the Charlottesville, Va. Estate Sale. A truly stunning 19th century French hand painted portrait.
There is an artist signature beside her left shoulder it looks like; MINNE?? Possibly; Georg 1866. Beautifully painted on material indicative to the period, (need I say More?). This is accented with a lovely wood like frame. Bronze gilt framing accented with swirl design surrounds the lovely portrait. What a gorgeous painting and the frame too! This has a couple nicks on the edge of the frame.
The entire frame measures 4.5"L x 3 7/8"w x 5/8 "d, the portrait itself is approx., 2.5"long x 2.25"wide.
