The 78 paintings on this page were once thought to be the work of Vigee Le Brun. Most were originally found in museum and library archives by our team with notes of attribution to Vigee Le Brun. Over the years they have been non-attributed to Vigee Le Brun and in some cases identified as the work of other artist. We decided to keep these images on the site at this location for the record.

Mlle Lamoignon - 1778
Miniature after Vigee Le Brun
For 1776, vlb listed a Mme de Lamoignon, Marie-Elisabeth Berryer, who married M. Lamoignon, president de Basville, ministre de Louis XVI. The couple had nine children, and it was considered possible that the 1778 listing was for one of their daughters.Olivier located a miniature of one of their daughters prepared after Vigee le Brun. She is Marie Louise Elisabeth de Lamoignon, who was born in Paris on 3 October 1763. She would later marry Francois-Edouard Mole comte de Champlatreux, who was guillotined during the Terror. She died in 1820. She was the mother of the well-known politician, count Mathieu Mole.

Marie Antoinette - ?
This may be a 19th Century print. One of our contributors believes the dress style to be similar to the 1785 portrait, while another contributor believes the head resembles Vigee Le Brun's 1776-77 copy after Wertmuller.

Princess Daria Alexandrovna Troubetzkoy, nee Countess Roumiantzeff - 1795-1801
miniature drawing, oval, Smithsonian Institute.
Lived 1732-1809. Lada Nikolenko made this attribution, and perhaps she intended to say that the miniature could be after an original portrait of Vigee Le Brun, who didn't paint miniatures. But Vigee Le Brun didn't list any portrait of this sitter, and the style doesn't seem similar to hers. Therefore, this attribution seems very unlikely.

An adaptation (most proably after Vigee Le Brun) of her 1782 self portrait.

Self Portrait copy - 1781
oil on canvas
A copy of Vigée Le Brun's 1781 self portrait by an unknown artist. This painting has been displayed for decades in the French period room (image 1) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. I understand that the MET has known for years that it was a copy by another artist but it served its purpose well as a decorative piece in the period room. I noticed it missing from the room in Feb 2013. The "bug eyes" and the problem with the excess distance between the eyes have bothered me for 20 years but I though it was a fluke. No artist can possibly paint every portrait perfectly.

Christi's NY auctioned the portrait on 30 Jan 2014 for $75,000. As a copy by an unknown artist it's not worth a fraction of that even if it is a period piece. of China will paint you a museum quality copy of the Kimbell Museum self portrait (with free shipping) for less that $251 US. A great savings for the same class of painting - a copy. I've seen their excellent product. If you are going to buy a copy buy Starry Night.

Nicolas Beaujon-1784-85
oil on canvas
This image is a copy of the portrait on Art Page 105 by another artist. It is at Musée Carnavalet, Paris. Nicolas Beaujon (1718-1786), was the court banker to Louis XV.

Marie Antoinette - 1776-77

Empress Elisabeth Alexeevna-1795-1801
oil on canvas
Empress Elisabeth Alexeevna.
Painted by Vladimir Lukich Borovikovsky (1757-1825).
Background: Nikolenko and Angela Demutskiy considered this the work of Vladimir Borovikovsky. Jana Talkenberg also notes that new research of Russian experts show that it is by Borovikovsky, and that the identification if the sitter is also wrong. Their research shows the sitter is Empress Elisabeth Alexeevna. and note that it was incorrectly shown in Portrait Russes as being a portrait of (brunette) Grand Duchess Anna Feodorovna (1781-1860) by Vigée Le Brun, but now is known to be a Borovikovsky of (blonde) Empress Elisabeth Alexeevna.
La Vicoumtesse de Virieu - 1779
oil on canvas
This was sold at Christies as a painting by Antoine Pesne.

Madame Baudin - 1835
We are looking for information on this portrait or sitter? This painting does not look like a VLB painting. Charles pointed out that her post 1825 paintings were not this realistic. There are many links on the net identifying this image as a painting by VLB. There is not enough information at this time to move this image to the site pages.
From charles:This Mdm Baudin is painted in a very realistic style. The chin line shows it is a painting and not a photograph, but other elements such as the nose almost look photographic. But we only have a few images of formal paintings by her after 1825, and they also appear more realistic than her earlier works. See: feisthamel.jpg

Mme de Fougeret - 1774

Found to be attributed to Angelica Kauffmann as Portrait "de femme a la rose dan les cheveux". Auctioned by Cornette de Saint-Cyr on Wednesday, December 10, 1997 as lot 96 for $10,016. Charlotte d'Outremont, daughter of a Conseiller au Grand Conseil, who in 1770 married Jean de Fougeret (guillotined 1794), receveur general des Finances du comte de Bourgogne . Owners of Chateau-Renard (Loiret) they had three daughters; one of them, comtesse Angelique de Maussion (1772-1851), wrote Rescapes de Thermidor. The sitter was identified based on an engraving of Mme de Fougeret. After the Terror, she turned to charity work, and had an engraving made to represent her in publications. The Vigee Le Brun portrait (made more than 20 years earlier) was used as the model for the face in the engraving.

Carle Vernet - 1778
oil? on canvas, 25.6 x 21.5in.
This one was sold as being in the circle of Henri-Pierre Danloux as Portrait "de Jeune Homme", Auctioned by Loudmer Scp. on Tuesday, December 15, 1992 as lot 53 for $1,507.
Carle Vernet (1758-1836) was the son of Joseph Vernet. Both were artists. Joseph Vernet had been a friend of Vigee Le Brun's's father, and had given her some painting advice in her youth. vlb painted Joseph Vernet in 1778, and in 1789 she painted his daughter, Emilie Chalgrin, who had been a lifelong friend of hers. Mme Chalgrin would tragically go to the guillotine in 1793 (or 1794).
The location of the original portrait is unknown. The portrait is not listed in Vigee Le Brun's painting list.

Comtesse Kinska nee Diedrichstein - 1793
oil on canvas, oval, 28-3/4 x 23-1/2 in
View a black and white image of the framed painting.
Helm had described this painting: white cap and dress, light blue sash; fair with blue eyes. Someone later called it a painting of Kinsky. But as Angela has pointed out, Kinsky had dark brown eyes. Thus, it is NOT a painting of Kinsky.Furthermore, Angela says that the painting was recently auctioned as "circle of Vigee LeBrun." So I believe that Angela's opinion is that ckinska.jpg and alady10.jpg are photos of the same painting, that they are not by VLB and they are not Kinsky. - Charles, 5 April 09

Marie Antoinette - 1788
pastel, Ringling Museum
Marie Antoinette in blue velvet dress. A new Marie Painting version from Angela - Sept 2008 From Charles: "Regarding the Ringling pastel, I had received an e-mail note from the Associate Registrar of the Ringling, Rebecca Engelhardt, on 18 March 1998, saying that the pastel they had was "after VLB".
Le Comte d'Artois
Etching of a painting by vlb of Le Comte d'Artois ?

From Oliver: the portrait of count d'Artois sent by Angela is painted by Danloux (cf. Portalis): i reproduced it in my book L'Amour à Paris au temps de Louis XVI, Paris, perrin, 2003.

Princess Ecaterina Ossipovna Tiufiakin-1801-1802
oil on canvas
ANGELA: This image was Grafinia Sofia Adamovna Zamoiskaia, 1778-1837 by Lampi. I think it's vlb's 1801-1802 Princess Ecaterina Ossipovna Tiufiakin nee Horvath portrait. She's sitting on a cloud bank, flowing scarf, wings.
JANA: This image is Zofia Zamoyska nee Czartoryska by Heinrich Friedrich Fuger (1751-1818).I agree with Angela that this is not by vlb. A copy of this portrait is located at castle Lancut, Poland.

A Boy - ?
oil on canvas
Image of a boy I have found on a Polish web-site as a painting by vlb. Does anyone know something about this portrait? I did't see it before. - Jana
Regarding the portrait of the boy, my Master List has it. The magazine Apollo, 90:cxxxii, Sep 1969, published the same painting (or a copy of it): . Apollo said that it was "Portrait du Dauphin de France," oil on canvas, oval, 22 7/8" x 18 1/8". Apollo noted that the painting was signed G. Amaury (whoever that was), but nevertheless, the owner attributed the painting to Vigee LeBrun. [This seems bizarre to me. If someone is going to forge a signature to a painting, they will forge a famous artist's name, not sign an unknown artist's name.] Of course, that could raise the question, maybe there was an original by someone famous, perhaps even vlb, and the painting by G. Amaury was a copy of that. That is all I know of the matter, and I didn't think that a painting signed "G. Amaury" was worthy of being listed on the vlb website based on the word of the owner.

oil on canvas, 152cm x 185cm
Pushkin Museum, Moscow
According to Elena Sharnova of Moscow, past curator of French Art at the Pushkin Museum: "The painting is signed "Riviere". I believe, that it was painted by Mme. de Riviere, Vigee Le Brun's neice who exhibited in the Parisian Salons in 1810's . I know some of her portarit drawings. When the museum purchased the portrait in 1964, the owner told that the portrait represents Josephine-Wilhelmine Budaevskaya, the wife of Polish General who was at Napoleon'survice.

Jean Baptiste Pierre Le Brun - date?
oil on canvas
By Jean Baptiste Pierre Le Brun Vigee Le Brun's husband whom she married in 1776

Jean Baptiste Pierre Le Brun - date?
Heinz National Portrait Gallery Library
Elisabeth Vigee married M. Le Brun on January 11, 1776. He was a well-known art dealer, and Vigee Le Brun benefitted from her ability to study many great art works that passed through his hands. It's also possible that her husband's connections allowed her to win commissions that she might not have won otherwise. On the negative side, her husband took all of her earnings, spending the money on gambling and other women. Because of her close connections to the aristocracy, Vigee Le Brun and her daughter fled France in 1789, leaving her husband behind. In exile, she was able to keep her earnings for herself, and became wealthy. Her husband, concerned for his security during the Revolution, filed for divorce. He died in 1813.
While Vigee Le Brun didn't paint miniatures, this work is similar to her style, and may be a copy after a painting by her (though she didn't list any portraits of her husband).

Queen Marie Antoinette - 1786
oil on canvas 

Word from Versailles, via a friend, is that this painting is after the 1786 full length portrait of the Queen in blue holding a book. Apparently several copies were made of the 1786 work in half length, with alterations in costume. It is unclear whether there is an authentic version by Vigee Le Brun with this particular costume.<
