Object description :

"French School From XVIIth Century. Portrait Of The Duchess Of Burgundy"
Pierre Gobert's workshop around 1700 Oil on canvas and original frame. 18th century frame in carved and gilded oak. Total dimensions with the frame: 83 x 72 cm Portrait of Marie-Adélaïde de Savoie (1685-1712), Princess of Savoy, Dauphine of France, daughter of Victor-Amédée II, Duke of Savoie, and Anne Marie d'Orléans . In 1697, she married Louis of France (1682 † 1712), Duke of Burgundy, then dauphin of France. They had three children. She conquered the old king Louis XIV, grandfather of her husband as well as his secret wife, Madame de Maintenon (whom she colloquially called "my aunt"). She also seduced her pious husband, and remained united in everything. She also respected her stepfather, the Grand Dauphin, who did not like her eldest son, the Duke of Burgundy. In short, she was the link between the whole family between 1697 and 1712. Her maternity homes strengthened her position at Court, and everyone saw her as a future queen. She loved partying, hunting, pleasure, but cared very much for others. Her husband devoted a violent and passionate love to her, paid little in return: the princess listened to her husband, supported him against their enemies (the Grand Dauphin, the Duchess of Bourbon and the Princess of Conti, both legitimated daughters of Louis XIV). So in 1708, she flew to the aid of her husband, slandered for his lack of military courage ... The one she admired was the king. As often on her portraits, she is dressed in a red dress, embroidered with gold and covered with a large cape of blue velvet lined with ermine, her hairstyle is "Fontanges". Pierre Gobert (Fontainebleau, 1662 - Paris, 1744) French painter, son of the sculptor Jean II Gobert. He was received at the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture on December 31, 1701 as a portrait painter. He became the favorite painter of the great ladies of the court at the end of the reign of Louis XIV as shown by the large number of portraits of these that he produced. Beautiful state of conservation. Sold with invoice & certificate
