French 19th Century Romantic Period 1830s Parisian Lady Portrait Madame Seguin circa 1840

$4,506.00

A stunning portrait of a Parisian beauty from the romantic period by Adele Grasset (active ca 1830-1850). With her intelligent eyes and determined look, doesn’t this lady bear great resemblance to Chopin’s paramour George Sand?
The sitter is Jeanne Marie Vidal, wife of Claude Auguste Seguin, from a prominent family in Avignon, as the family tree attached to the back for the frame indicates. Research in old annals has also revealed that Madame Seguin was a modern and independent lady: she worked in lady’s fashion in Paris, and patented wrapping mechanism that protected lady’s hats during their transport!
