In this last of her three lectures focusing on women artists of the Renaissance and Baroque eras, Art Historian Meredith Shimizu explores the work of prominent late 18th century French portrait painter Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, whose artistic style is generally considered part of the aftermath of Rococo with elements of an adopted Neoclassical style. Vigée Le Brun created a name for herself in pre- French Revolution France society by serving as the portrait painter to Marie Antoinette, whom she painted 30 times, and enjoyed the patronage of several European aristocrats, actors, and writers.
