Description
Louis XVI (1754 – 93), grandson of Louis XV, son of Marie-Josèphe, Princesse de Saxe and the Dauphin, Louis, came to the throne in 1774; he fell victim to the guillotine. This miniature is a copy of a state portrait by Louis Michel Van Loo, dated 1769, in the Musée de Versailles. A more ambitious minniature by Hall of Louis XVI, taken to be that exhibited by him in the Salon of 1769, was formerly in the Pierpont Morgan collection. It was his group of miniatures in that Salon which led to the recognition of Hall’s originality and the broad freedom of his style.
