Catalogue Note

The sitter was a daughter of Prince George William of Hesse-Darmstadt (1722–1782) and Countess Maria Louise Albertine of Leiningen-Dagsburg-Falkenburg (1729–1818). In 1770 she accompanied Marie-Antoinette to France, and although she returned to Hesse, she kept in contact with the French Queen until 1792. In 1777 she married Louis I of Hesse-Darmstadt (1753–1830). Her husband ruled Hesse-Darmstadt from 1790 as Landgrave Louis X and from 1806 as Ludwig I, Grand Duke of Hesse and the Rhine.
