Alexander Roslin, The Lady with the Veil (The Artist's Wife), 1768


  1. That is my favourit too! Since Roslin was from Sweden the exhibition started here in Sweden before it went to Versailles.I bought a bag with this print on it, it is my favourite! I have the privilige to live in the same city as that painting is shown, so I try to go and look at the Roslin paintings as often as I can.

  2. Oh that is so very cool! I wouldn't mind if that exhibition decided to come to New York!

  3. Marie Suzanne Giroust was an excellent painter herself, specialising in oil pastel. The exhibition at the Stockholm National museum was truly amazing...and it had the most fantastic catalogue with covers in robbin's egg blue satin and all the paintings.
