A darling painting, enamelled and glazed in a domed shape, then secured in a gold frame. At the bottom of the fame is an attached plaque with the name Vigee Lebrun.

This painting was originally an oil on wood from the 1700s which is now displayed in the Louvre, in Paris France. It is a self portrait of the artist, with her daughter, Julie and has been recreated in this unique domed enamel. During the course of her lifetime, Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun painted many self-portraits, including her 1789 Self-Portrait with Her Daughter Julie (à l’Antique). In this intimate painting, she is seated on a bench as her daughter Julie leans into her body, and the arms of mother and daughter circle around each other. What differentiates this work from other self-portraits is her choice of attire. In this work, she appears to be wearing a one-shouldered dress that resembles the ancient Greek chiton, a garment not worn since antiquity.
