Catalogue Note

This impeccably-preserved, unlined canvas is remarkable in that the painted signature of Largilliere can still be seen on the reverse of the canvas.  It most probably depicts Marie-Adélaïde de Savoie, who became duchesse de Bourgogne when she married Louis, Dauphin of France and duc de Bourgogne, as part of the Treaty of Turin in 1696.  She was the mother of the future King Louis XV of France.
