Marquise d'Aguirandes

Artist: Francoise Hubert Drouais
Date:1759

Francois Hubert-Drouais – (1727 – 1775) French . This painter from the end of the reign of Louis XV in France was a great favourite of the royal court and renowned for his skill at ‘veiling physical imperfections’.  He painted Louis XV and his official mistresses including Madame de Pompadour & Mme du Barry as well as the young Marie-Antoinette. (In fact he was consulted to go to Austria to paint the young Marie Antoinette before her marriage to the future Louis XVI but his commission was considered too high, Ducreux was sent instead). His popularity meant that his portraits became a must-have accessory for the aristocracy of the time.  

Sadly who the Marquise herself was is lost, I can find more information about her 18th century printed cloth dress, with the brilliant gold and white fabric strewn with beautifully detailed flowers and lace than about her. Hubert Drouais’ skill at painting the fabric means that it is used to show the fashions of the day.

Quality

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
