Chevalier D’Eon Update
Back in April I reported on Philip Mould's discovery of Thomas Stewart's portrait of Chevalier D’Eon (1792) lost since 1926 (CLICK). The National Portrait Gallery in London has acquired the painting as a landmark work and has put it on public display (CLICK). Ironic to consider that our modern kick-ass heroines owe it all to Chevalier D’Eon's popular displays of swordfighting in drag! A man led the way, girls.
