First Night Design | Such a Cheeky Painting #Sold

I’ve seen this painting before. Isn’t it supposed to be a painting of the mistress of a member of the aristocracy and her friend as a saucy picture for his bedchamber?

What fun to have sold a whacking great print of Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters on Fine Art America. It’s a delightfully cheeky oil painting; it’s a great shame the artist is unknown. Who would have thought that such a sassy image would have been acceptable in 1594!

Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters, or Portrait presume de Gabrielle d’Estrees et de sa soeur la duchesse, was at one time attributed to Frans Pourbus and at another to Francois Clouet. The true artist remains unknown but the picture belongs to the School of Fontainebleau. Painted in oil on an oak panel in 1594, it now hangs in the Louvre.
