Literature
Wishing to be admitted to the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture as a history painter, Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun presented in 1783 this allegory as her reception piece. At that time, historical, religious, mythological and allegorical subjects were considered superior to all others (portraiture, landscape, genre and still life), and only allowed to men. Indeed, the number of Academicians women was extremely limited. A direct order from the King and Marie-Antoinette was required for this exception to be allowed and Vigée Le Brun accepted as a painter at the Academy. After the Salon of 1783, her canvas was installed in the exhibition hall of the Academie at the Louvre.
