More info

Born in 1774, the painter Joseph Franque was a student of the preeminent Neoclassical painter Jacques-Louis David.

He painted a number of portraits for the Imperial family, including his celebrated portrait the Empress Marie-Louise currently hanging in Versailles.

He left Paris in 1812, the same year this work was composed, following Elisa Bonaparte, Napoléon’s sister, to Italy.

He settled there, eventually earning the directorship of the Fine Art Academy in Naples.

Today, his works are represented in important museum collections worldwide, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Palace of Versailles.
