drawing, h 41cm × w 32.5cm × w 2.4kg More details

According to Liotard, the dauphine was so impressed by Liotard’s pastels, among them La Liseuse, that Liotard was invited to make portraits of almost the entire French royal family. This example, which Liotard kept for himself, is one of the most charming in its simple presentation of the newlywed young princess.
