Madame de Broglie
A feast of art with some commentary from author Melanie Clegg. Madame de Broglie was the granddaughter of the Royal Governess, Madame de Tourzel. To quote:
Joséphine-Éleanore-Marie-Pauline de Galard de Brissac de Béarn, Princess Albert de Broglie (1853, Metropolitan Museum of Art). Ingres captured the rather awkward, shy demeanour of this rather pious young woman perfectly – it’s clear that she is no flirt, unlike her pretty sister in law, Louise. (Read more.)
