Marie Louise Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun
French, 1755–1842
Oil on canvas
Acquired by Sterling and Francine Clark, 1939

  "What impresses me most about Vigée-Lebrun's Bacchante is the artist's ability to capture the attitude of abandonment I would imagine in a follower of Dionysus. Her ruddy cheeks, half-closed eyes, and the general disarray of hair and clothing create the image of a woman catching a quick breath before the revelry begins again. As my eye catches hers, it is almost as if she is inviting me to come along."
