1745 Pompadour en pelerine by Louis Vigée (location unknown to gogm)


Louis Vigée was a notable artist, but his daughter Élisabeth Louise Vigéee Lebrun is best noted for portraying aristocratic fashion.

From www.pastellists.com.

This portrait of the Marquise de Pompadour shows what a pelerine looked like in the middle 1700s - it was a cape.
