[n.d., c.1752.]
Rare etching. Sheet 280 x 185mm (11 x 7¼"). Trimmed within plate.
A portrait of Justine Favart (Marie Justine Benoîte Duronceray, 1727-72), playing the harp in the role of Roxelane in The Three Sultanas, written by her husband, Charles Simon Favart. An operatic singer, actress, playwright and dancer, Justine caught the attention of Maurice, comte de Saxe, a Marshal of France and her husband's patron. When he began to making advances, Charles was forced to flee so that Justine could be established as Maurice's mistress. When the marshal realised she was fickle, she was confined in a convent until she surrendered herself. Soon afterwards, in 1750, the marshal died and Favarts could resume their careers. This print was published two years later.
