Catalogue Note

Louise Marès was the daughter of Etienne Marès (1781-1840) and his wife Louise, born Bidreman (1798-1882). Coming from an important family in Montpellier, young Louise married Albert d'Albenas in 1854.

Alexandre Cabanel had only just returned from Rome when the Marès commissionned him with a series of portraits of their family and friends. Among those, three remain known: the Portrait of Louise Marès born Bidreman (Montpellier, Musée Fabre), the Portrait of Henri Marès (private collection), and our painting.

A copy of this painting executed in 1880 by Alfred Boisson is mentionned in the Montpellier and Cologne exhibition catalogue (op. cit.).
