Fearing she might lose her head if she remained, Elizabeth Vigee Le Brun fled France for Florence in 1789. She left behind dear friends and fellow Royalists, but she was welcomed in Florence as a celebrity and was promptly asked to execute a self-portrait for the Uffizi Gallery.

The Uffizi wanted her self-portrait to add to their collection - portraits of famous artists done by their own hand. Many believe the work she began there but completed in Rome to be the best likeness ever accomplished by Elisabeth Louise Vigee-LeBrun.

She was 34-years-old, living more like a queen than artist. She was livin’ the dream, but it is interesting to note that she painted herself at her easel as she began creating a portrait of her dear friend, Marie Antoinette.

This portrait plaque is signed on the back in monogram: “D. N. C.” It also carries the appropriate labels and a fleur-de-lis under which is written “Firenze” the a red stamp indicating the origin of the porcelain - Florence.

Look closely, and you will see Marie’s collar, maybe a necklace or possibly a premonition in metaphor; the fate of L'Autrichienne.

Elisabeth Louise Vigee-Lebrun(1755 - 1842)

This painting remains in its original gilt wood frame. Both the portrait on an oval porcelain plaque and the hand carved frame remain in excellent condition. The frame is missing one applied, inner corner decorative gewgaw, which is good. It gives the pettifoggers something to harp about while the rest of us concentrate on the rarity and beauty of the object itself.

Overall, including the elaborate frame = 13” by 11 ½” (33.02 cm by 29.21 cm)

Oval portrait on porcelain = 7” by 5⅜ (17.78 cm by 13.65 cm)

More images and commentary continue below my three "Prime Directives:"
1st: I never, under any circumstances, use a reserve, and rarely do I ask for an opening offer of more than $9.00 (sometimes even less).
2nd: I never end sales early.
3rd: I don’t usually clean, repair, or otherwise monkey around with anything. I push enough dust aside to expose any flaws, but if I discovered it in some dusty attic, you can look forward to a little dust on it when it gets to your house. If it has a flaw or a wart, I'll tell you about it.
So rest easy and have some fun.

Here, without question, is an example of 19th Century portraiture on porcelain worthy of any collection.

ABSOLUTELY NO DISAPPOINTMENTS

GOOD LUCK
