The Portrait of Mademoiselle Charlotte du Val d'Ognes by Marie Denise Villers was first attributed to Jacques-Louis David. It was considered a great painting until it was pointed out in 1951 that this was painted by a woman. Suddenly, people saw all sorts of faults in the work.. The woman in this painting is drawing in a room of the Louvre and the broken window behind her is a great piece of skill, but it is also a bit unclear why it is there. #Art #Artwork #ArtHistory #Painting #Female #FemaleArtist #Villers #David #Neoclassicism #Metropolitan #MetMuseum #NewYork #Louvre #Drawing #Painter #Misattribution #ironic
