Adele Romany, a French painter born in 1769 and active until her death in 1846, was known for her contributions to the Neoclassicism movement. Her work “Portrait de dame,” created in 1829, is an oil on canvas measuring 62 x 51.5 cm. This piece is one of her many portraits that capture the essence of her subjects with a neoclassical touch, emphasizing grace and clarity.
Romany’s “Portrait de dame” is recognized for its historical significance and artistic merit, as it reflects the style and cultural aesthetics of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The painting is part of a larger body of work by female artists who have made significant contributions to art history, yet often remain underrepresented.
