Summary

Portrait of Françoise Marie de Bourbon, Duchess of Orléans and wife of the Regent of France; youngest daughter of Louis XIV and Madame de Montespan

Rosalba Carriera (1673–1757) was a Venetian Rococo painter. In her younger years, she specialized in portrait miniatures. It is for this that she was able to build a career in portraiture. Carriera would later become known for her pastel work, a medium appealing to Rococo styles for its soft edges and flattering surfaces. She is remembered as one of the most successful women artists of any era.
