François Dumont was Queen Marie-Antoinette's favorite miniaturist. In this portrait we find all the beauty and freshness of Mrs. Elisabeth, dressed in a simple cream dress, a transparent scarf and wearing a rose bouquet tied to her corsage. We imagine her walking around the hamlet of Versailles, in her country outfit in company of the queen. All the finesse of Dumont's art is expressed through this work.
