Provenance - Hamilton Sale, 15 July, 1882, Lot 1509
This charming portrait presentes French pastel painter Marie-Suzanne Giroust, Madame Roslin (9 March 1734 – 31 August 1772), who was known more as a wife of Swedish portrait painter Alexander Roslin.
The original portrait by Alexander Roslin was published by Gunnar Lundberg in 1957 but also is known another replica of this portrait from the collection Anders Zorn. I’m very thankful to contemporary Swedish painter Johan Patricny to his great help in identification of this charming portrait (surprisingly in his Instagram ) .
