Note: Louis-Michel Van Loo, nephew of Carle Van Loo, studied in Turin and Rome before becoming a court painter for King Philip V of Spain. In 1753, Van Loo painted many court portraits in Paris under King Louis XV, including the lovely canvas presented here of the Marquise de Marigny. Marie Françoise Constance Julie Filleul was the illegitimate daughter of King Louis XV and his mistress in the early 1700s, Marie Irene Catherine du Buisson de Longpré. Filleul married Abel François Poisson de Vandières in 1767, and the king soon made the couple the Marquis and Marquise de Marigny. Poisson de Vandières was the brother of the king’s favorite mistress, Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, the famous Madame de Pompadour. In this portrait, Van Loo depicts the sitter in an elegant silk gown with a delicate stripe and flower pattern, covered by an ermine and velvet robe, while the styling of her hair and jewelry perfectly fits the court fashions of the mid-18th century.

Provenance: Julie de Fazande Yokum van Calsem, Casa Hove, New Orleans; New Orleans Antiquarian Collection.
Note: The stunning vitrine shown here is a superb example of the elegant Grecian style of New York cabinetmakers such as Duncan Phyfe, Michael Allison, and Charles-Honoré Lannuier. The base of the vitrine shares many characteristics with New York pier tables, including the overall form and proportions, elaborate allegorical gilt stencil decoration, and winged hairy paw feet.
A rare form among American Classical furniture, this vitrine shares a similar configuration with a bookcase made by Phyfe for North Carolina architect Robert Donaldson. Interestingly, an account of Donaldson’s furniture written by his daughter in 1928 describes his furniture as “all Duncan Phyfes” and describes “the cabinet pier table in parlor,” a reference to the pier table base of the related piece.
