Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842) è senza dubbio la più significativa artista donna nella Francia del Rococò. Emancipata, dotata di una raffinata bellezza e di un talento straordinario, ha ritratto personaggi illustri e alla moda durante il regno di Maria Antonietta proseguendo nel periodo Neoclassico. Ho selezionato alcune sue opere analizzando dettagli che raccontano stili e tendenze sorprendenti.

Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842) is undoubtedly the most significant female artist in Rococo France. Emancipated, endowed with a refined beauty and an extraordinary talent, she portrayed illustrious and fashionable characters during the reign of Marie Antoinette, continuing in that Neoclassical period that is very present in the artist’s canvases. I have selected some of her works by analyzing amazing details.

Face Powder during XVIII sec – La Cipria a Versailles

“La cipria fu un elemento tanto diffuso al punto che intorno al 1770 era vietato recarsi a corte senza prima averne utilizzata in gran quantità sui capelli, sì che quello divenne il profumo più diffuso nei saloni di Versailles…

Questo cosmetico veniva soffiato su viso e capelli di uomini e donne dopo che avevano indossato un pesante mantello per riparare i propri abiti e nascondeva sotto il suo spesso strato, prima rosa poi bianco, i segni del volto e spesso anche le cicatrici causate dal vaiolo. Il conte Fersen, un giorno, ricevuto dalla contessa di Brionne, rimase sedotto e divertito nel vederla rimuovere dal proprio volto la polvere in eccesso attraverso un apposito coltello di argento”

Dal mio #libro “Il Macabro e il Grottesco nella Moda e nel Costume” è disponibile in  al link: “Il Macabro e il Grottesco nella Moda e nel Costume”

Face powder was so much fashionable during XVIII sec that around 1770 it was forbidden to go to court without first have used it in large quantities on hair, so that became the scent more widespread in the halls of Versailles…

This cosmetic was blown up face and hair of men and women later that they had worn a heavy one mantle to repair their clothes e it was hiding under its thick layer,
first pink then white, the signs of the face and often also the scars caused from smallpox. Count Fersen, one day, received from the Countess of Brionne, remained
seduced and amused to see her remove powder dust in excess from her face
through a special knife of silver…”
