Portrait of Louise-Antoinette Feuardent 1841 by Jean-Frangois Millet . Oil on canvas 73.3 × 60 cm Before Jean-Frangois Millet achieved international success as a painter of peasant life, he earned his early living as a portraitist. Here, he depicted Louise-Antoinette Feuardent, the wife of his lifelong friend Flix-Bienaim Feuardent, a clerk in the library at Cherbourg. In this portrait painted shortlyafter her marriage, Louise-Antoinette prominently displays her wedding band on her left hand. In a style reminiscent of seventeenth-century Dutch painters, Millet painted the modestly dressed sitter against a plain background using a limited palette. Louise-Antoinette looks out of the picture, her brown eyes calmly assessing the viewer. Through a tightly controlled composition and a careful balance of monochromatic tones, Millet captured Louise-Antoinette's self-containment, reserve. 📍 The J.
