Artwork Detail Request a print

Roslin worked in the tradition of Hyacinthe Rigaud and Nicolas de Largillierre, and specialised in intimate portraits. This painting is possibly from his studio, but lacks the depth demonstrated in his best works. Because of his links to the French court Roslin fell from favour, Denis Diderot judging his portraits in the 1765 Salon as 'stupid flat and sad'.
