Vigee Lebrun

I have a high quality print of this painting and I am considering getting it framed so I can hang it properly. I have always loved the art of Elizabeth Vigée Le Brun, the most famous female painter of the 18th century. Here she is with her daughther, Julie.

I just bought an historical novel of her life, witten in French, to give me something to read in French. In any case, my daugher says she loves this print, so I will get it framed.

yes, I keep thinking of what a tragedy it would be if women were restricted to the helper role. What beauty we would be deprived of.
