Peter Adolf Hall - Portrait of Queen Marie Antoinette - Walters 38615
Hall left Sweden for France in 1766. Within three years, he was officially a painter to King Louis XVI. Hall introduced to French miniature painting a seemingly spontaneous technique employing broad, loose brushstrokes.
Marie Antoinette of Lorraine (1755-93) married Louis XVI in 1770 and shared her husband's fate in 1793.
