Great Women in Art History: Louise Elisabeth Vigee LeBrun

Learn about this remarkable French painter who was one of the few women of the 18th and 19th centuries in Europe to have a successful career in painting. Vigee LeBrun was the portraitist of Marie Antoinette, but, unlike her famous patron, survived the French Revolution and went on to have a career painting portraits of European aristocrats and artists well into the 1800’s. We will look at Vigee LeBrun’s most famous portraits and discuss her lively self-portraits, which were surprisingly controversial at the time. Ann Shifflet from Columbus College of Art and Design presents.
