Madame Danloux, 1788


Madame Danloux by François-Guillaume Ménageot, 1788

A Lady, said to be Madame Danloux, nursing her Child in a Drawing Room. Madame Danloux, wife of the portrait painter Henri-Pierre Danloux, gave birth to a child in Rome in 1788. The identification of the sitter as Madame Danloux seems to be based on the fact that both Henri-Pierre and his wife knew Ménageot well and that the picture apparently once bore the date 1788.
