Jean-Étienne Liotard

Over this summer the Scottish National Gallery is showing the work of Jean-Etienne Liotard, one of the finest artists of the eighteenth century (CLICK). Shown is his portrait of Princess Louisa Anne (1754) on loan from the Royal Collection Trust © Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 2015. The princess was only five years old when Liotard painted her portrait in pastel on vellum. Stunning. The exhibition is a collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts in London and will open here on 24 October at inflated prices.
