One of the Clark’s newest acquisitions is now on view in the permanent collection galleries. Although her name is not particularly well known today, Hortense Haudebort-Lescot was one of the most celebrated women painters of the early nineteenth century.

She regularly exhibited at the Paris Salon, showing 110 works over her lifetime, and gained commissions from the French court for the museum at Versailles. 

Her portrait of a honeymoon couple being serenaded by two musicians creates a romantic scene.

Come and visit soon to see this beautiful painting!
