"Presumed Portrait Of Mademoiselle De Fontange, Oil On Canvas, Decapé Reported Setting, Time Lo"
Presumed Portrait of Mademoiselle de Fontanges The bust is shown in profile and reveals all the finesse of the velvet garment embroidered with gold whose neck is hemmed with lace. The whole is covered with a very bright red coat raising the composition. This coat, like the subject's pearl tinge, is detached from the dark background that brings the subject back to the foreground and keeps the attention on the face. The latter is powdered with rice, painted with red, enorgueuillit pearl earrings and rank of pearls in hair styled "La Fontanges". Marie-Angélique de Scorailles de Roussille, Duchess of Fontanges (1661-1681) is from Cantal (she was born perhaps to the castle of Cropières) and was famous for having been the mistress of Louis XIV (between her loves with the Montespan), and for launching the fashion of a new hairstyle that bore his name. It was understood by her family that she will go to court to seduce the king and make some profit, a design which she carried out very well. She was helped by Montespan, who saw in her only a passing love to distract the King, who would then return to her. But the King clung to it and the Marquise was so angry that she ransacked her rival's apartments with tamed bears ... The good words did not spare young Fontanges. The King grew weary, and the Maintenon was charged with pushing it at the beginning. The Mademoiselle de Fontanges replied in a beautiful spirit: "Madame, you ask me to get rid of a passion as one leaves a shirt, so you do not know anything about the movements of the heart?" Bad layers physically bruise her and drive her away from the King. Ill, Louis XIV prefers to give up and as a farewell gift the duchess and it constitutes an annuity of 22,000 ecus. It goes out a year later in 1681. A period frame of XVII was decapé, which gives a more contemporary rendering to the whole. It can nonetheless be redore (on estimate) Rentoilage Dim.
