The Metropolitan Museum of New York, on the occasion of its tribute exhibition of the work of Elisabeth Louis Vigée Le Brun, presents a video about the artist. Vigée Le Brun was a portrait painter in many European courts; she was the last portraitist of the French royal house, chosen by Marie Antoinette to paint the queen’s own portraits, and became Europe’s most important female artist. Given her close association with the court, Vigée Le Brun had to flee France and live in exile in Naples, Vienna, and St. Petersburg.
