About the Artwork

Comtesse de la Châtre (Marie Charlotte Louise Perrette Aglaé Bontemps, 1762-1848), 1789. Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun. Oil on canvas. Gift of Jessie Woolworth Donahue, 1954.
In 1789, the sitter, daughter of Louis XV's premier valet de chambre, was the wife of the comte de la Châtre. She later married François Arnail de Jaucourt. For daily wear and for portraits, Vigée Le Brun favored white muslin dresses in this style for what she saw as their timeless, classical simplicity.
