拍品資料及來源

The composition relates to a portrait of three of the daughters of Louis XV - Mesdames Victoire, Sophie and Louise - by François-Hubert Drouais, painted as an overdoor for the Grand Cabinet of Madame Adélaïde, their sister. The king had a total of eight daughters and so it is conceivable that this miniature depicts three of the others. Lefèvre d'Orgeval is known to have painted miniatures after large-scale works.
