MDCI L'Aimée

L'Aimée, or "The Beloved" is a famous 1794 oil portrait from French master Jacques-Louis David depicting his sister-in-law Madam Sérizat. Painted shortly after his release from Robespierre's prisons following the French Revolution, this masterwork is renowned for its effortless depiction of the subject's humanity, portraying Madam Sérizat holding a bouquet in one hand and her child's hand in the other. Its use of soft, warm color, as well as subtle touches of exquisite detail on the subject's hands and face, work together to evoke emotional depth and authenticity that transcend mere photorealism- beneath the surface, this painting truly breathes.
