Madame Moitessier

  • Also Known As: Madame Moitessier, Seated Portrait
  • Type: Painting

Madame Moitessier is 1856 portrait by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. The subject, Marie-Clotilde-Ines de Foucauld (1821-1897) married Sigisbert Moitessier, a wealthy banker and lace merchant, in 1842. In 1844, Mr Moitessier asked Ingres to paint a portrait of his wife. Ingres initially refused, but upon meeting her, he found her beautiful enough to be a worthy subject. The painting was original to have include Catherine Moitessier, the sitter's daughter, but she was too grown up by the time Ingres was ready to finish the painting. - AsNotedIn
