Portrait of Madame Vigee Le Brun - (date?)
Artist: Adele Romany (1769-1846)
Oil on Canvas, (90 x 70cm)
National Museum of Woman of the Arts, Washington, D.C.

For a long time we thought that this was a portrait of Madame Vigee Le Brun. We have learned from a member of our research team that it is actually a portrait of Suzanne Marie Francoise Vigee, Vigee Le Brun's sister in law. Read more about Suzanne Vigee .

Bust of Vigée Le Brun - 1783
Artist: Augustin Pajou (1730-1809)
Terra-cota Bust of Vigée Le Brun, Musee du Louvre
Artist: Augustin Pajou enjoyed a long and continuing success as a portraitist spanning the Enlightenment, the French Revolution and the Empire. He was Louis XVI's official portraitist and he completed many psychologically penetrating portrait busts of some of the greatest and most interesting figures of his age. He is best know for his bust of Louis XV's mistress Madame Du Barry

Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun - 17xx
watercolor on ivory, 8 1/8 x 10 in. (20.64 x 25.4 cm)
Walters Art Museum, Baltimore
Oddly enough, it was signed and dated on the pedestal of the column: Elizabeth Le Browne, September 1801. Walters Art Museum has it listed as though it's by VLB, which is ludicrous for reasons such as the fact that she rarely if ever can be said to have painted miniatures, and that her daughter was not a small child in 1801. The book that listed the Morgan Pierpont collection alleged that VLB Anglicized her name during her years in England to "Elizabeth le Browne," perhaps based only on this silly miniature, as I haven't seen that allegation elsewhere. We have seen many miniatures signed "Vigee Le Brun," and I didn't take that to be an attempt at passing off a miniature as a work of her hand, but rather a title telling the viewer what they are seeing.
