Portrait of The Princesse De Broglie

The portrait of Princesse Albert de Broglie was completed in 1853 by artist Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres who has portraits many celebrities in his age and once depends for

to drawing, which is in a sharp contrast to his nenemis, the Romantic school. In this painting, Ingres shows a suavity of outline to match the temperament of the princess. Instead of making recourse to the brushstroke to get shifting effects of color and light, he transcribes the material quality of objects to demonstrate beautiful color accuracy by spraying millions of ink droplets onto paper’s surface, bringing the satin, silk damask upholstery, richly embroidered scarf and the shinny jewels into life.
