This painting inevitably places itself among the eighteenth century Rococo style with neoclassical subject at its end .This one is a reproduction of the French painter Louis Elizabeth Vigee Le Burn ,who was recognized as the most famous female painter of the time .It is a reproduction of “Self Portrait in a Straw Hat’ the work of one of most charming painters of the French school.

What meets the eye is an upper class woman posing to be painted in a portrait . Done up in an elaborate way she creates quite a charming and captivating spectacle. Is it vanity that meets the eye? The fact that the lady is quite conscious of herself being enchanting and deriving pleasure out of it? Or sheer innocence? One almost feels like having had a glimpse into the secret of the heart that the lady dressed up impeccably projects. The artist sure succeeds in giving a characteristic attitude and expression in a nonchalantly pensive position.

One can see feminine softness and delicacy as a predominating element in the work ,which can be seen compensated with excellence of undeniable flesh tones. The accessories have been done with admirable skill The portrait has been painted in a charming and graceful style with sobriety and a note of sincerity that was exceptional in the eighteenth century art of France.

Above all what comes across as the most appealing aspect of the work is the element of universality that was the characteristic of nearly all the portraits done by the talented artist . Her portraits do not owe their beauty to the fact that they belong to any one special period, or because they bear the imprint of any definite epoch, but they are and always will be beautiful because of the universal truth they express. The truth of the human heart.

If we would catch in an attitude or in a look the moral reflection, so to speak of an epoch, if we would read the thoughts or divine the dreams harbored under the elaborate head-dresses of the great ladies of that day, or would guess the secrets of those hearts, sometimes full of tenderness, again light and flippant, concealed beneath transparent muslin fichus, it is to the works of Madame Vigee Le Brun that we must turn for answers to our queries.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
