Mlle Marguerite Gerard (1761-1837)-Attrib. "Dictation", oil on panel, ca.1790

Price: 5500  EUR

(please note additional 13% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)

Called "Enfant a son ecriture" by the auctioneers (see provenance below), this small oil on panel painting shows an aristocratic girl writing under dictation of her lady-tutor.
Formerly in possession of Philippe-Gabriel, duc de Marmier (1783-1845) and his wife Stephanie, duchess de Marmier, nee de Choiseul-Stainville (1782-1861) it came with whole inventory of their Chateau de Ray-sur-Saone (CLICK HERE) to auction house "Vassy & Jalengues" in French town Clermont-Ferrand and was acquired by us at its sale of 23rd November 2019.

Demonstrating highest quality, this painting (it seems to be a preparatory study for a large-scale one) strongly resembles works of well-known French female artist of late 18th century, Mlle Marguerite gerard (see our comparison images nr.7-9).

Mlle Marguerite Gerard (1761 Grasse -1837 Paris) was a younger sister of Mme Fragonard, wife of the painter Honore Fragonard. At the age of 14 she came to Paris into the house of her famous brother-in-law, where he began to instruct her in drawing and etching. Soon she started to paint family scenes in a genre that perfectly matched the taste of her time, so that she soon became famous in Paris. She exhibited at the Salon from 1799 to 1824, and obtained a First Class Medal in 1806. She painted mainly in oil, pastel and watercolor, did etchings and sometimes miniatures.
From 1780 she was considered one of the leading women artists in France, equal to Adelaide Labille-Guiard, Anne Vallayer-Coster and Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun
