Catalogue Note

Set in a sumptuous French interior redolent of Versailles, the present work likely depicts the boudoir of Madame du Barry, mistress of King Louis XV, himself standing to the left. The antique marble sculpture in the background, based on a bronze original dating from 200 BC, is now in the Louvre.
