About Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun

Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun

French painter, and is recognized as the most important female painter of the 18th century.

Her style is generally considered Rococo and shows interest in the subject of neoclassical painting. Vigée Le Brun cannot be considered a pure Neoclassist, however, in that she creates mostly portraits in Neoclassical dress rather than the History painting. In her choice of color and style while serving as the portrait painter to Marie Antoinette, Vigée Le Brun is purely Rococo.
