Voltaire à 24 ans

Voltaire. This image, "Voltaire à 24 ans," appears courtesy of the Musée Carnavalet (P 208). This painting may be a studio copy of a similar portrait in the Musée nationale de Versailles from the same year, which has been attributed to a different court painter, Catherine Luscurier. This portrait was reproduced in multiple engravings, all of which attribute the original to Largillière.
