1 record
Jacques Sablet had studied in Paris under Joseph-Marie Vien (who was also Jacques-Louis David’s teacher) and worked in Rome until the ripple effect of the French Revolution cost him clients and otherwise harmed his career. He represents the Roman aristocratic princess Eleonora Chigi in a simple dress in the Greek style that expresses the sitter’s lack of vanity; her interest in loftier pursuits is alluded to by her headdress of green ribbons that recalls a poet’s laurel crown.
