Description

An exceptionally fine execution frome the hand of a master !  Portrait miniature of Baronne De Stael. Although unsided, we believe this is by the renound artist Marie-Victoire Jaquotot, ca 1819, with a lovely original antique carved wood & gilt frame.

"Germaine de Staël, in full Anne-Louise-Germaine Necker, Baronne (baroness) de Staël-Holstein, byname Madame de Staël   (born April 22, 1766, Paris, Fr.—died July 14, 1817, Paris), French-Swiss woman of letters, political propagandist, and conversationalist, who epitomized the European culture of her time, bridging the history of ideas from Neoclassicism to Romanticism. She also gained fame by maintaining a salon for leading intellectuals. Her writings include novels, plays, moral and political essays, literary criticism, history, autobiographical memoirs, and even a number of poems. Her most important literary contribution was as a theorist of Romanticism." from Ency. Brittanica.
