    At one time ascribed to Jacques-Louis David, this alluring portrait has now been recognized as the work of Marie-Denise Villers. Although little known today, Villers was a gifted pupil of Girodet and exhibited in the Salons, where her portraits attracted attention. This work, which may be a self-portrait, was exhibited in the Salon of 1801.
