Vicomtesse Louise-Albertine d'Haussonville
705 x 998 • 530 KB
Ingres uses the mirror device as in Mme. Moitessier (London). This portrait, which gave him immense trouble, contains one of his rare and beautiful still-lifes. Mme. d'Haussonville's pose is copied from a Greco-Roman statue of Pudicitia in the Vatican Museum, but modernity triumphs over antiquity; we might be studying a chapter from a novel by Balzac.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
