About Louise de Broglie, Countesse d'Haussonville

The artwork “Louise de Broglie, Countesse d’Haussonville” is a portrait completed in 1845 by the artist Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. It is painted using oil on canvas and reflects the Neoclassical art movement. The dimensions of the artwork are 131.8 cm in height and 92 cm in width. The portrait is a part of the collection at the Frick Collection in New York City, New York, United States.

In this portrait, the Countess d’Haussonville is depicted in a sumptuous interior, with the focal point being her elegantly poised figure. She stands in a softly lit room, her gaze engaging the viewer with a subtle introspection. The Countess is dressed in a luxurious blue satin gown that drapes gracefully from her shoulders and billows around her, showcasing the artist’s mastery of rendering textures and fabrics with intricate detail. A red ribbon accents her hair, echoing the warmth of her lips and adding a vibrant contrast to the cool tones of her dress.

Her posture is relaxed yet sophisticated, with one arm resting on a stone mantelpiece, next to a vase and books that suggest a setting of cultured refinement. The other hand is delicately raised to her chest, highlighting the gold bracelet and ring adorning her fingers, symbols of her social status. A mirror is partially visible in the background, playing with the depth of the space and adding to the complexity of the composition with the reflection of the Countess’s back. Ingres’ skill in the depiction of his sitter’s arresting beauty and composed demeanor, in combination with the harmonious balance of color and light, creates a timeless statement of elegance and cultural aspiration characteristic of his era’s Neoclassical artistic expressions.
