Liotard

Jean-Étienne Liotard painted this little trompe l’oeil painting now hanging in New York’s Frick Collection in 1771 during his last stay in Paris. Liotard had traveled to Paris for a portrait commission only to realize that he had fallen out of fashion and was unable to procure any further orders for his work. In the upper part of the painting he depicts two plaster reliefs represented as objects that are nailed onto a wood support plate. The reliefs are of Venus and Cupid scenes after paintings by François Boucher, who had died in 1770 and had previously been a prominent competitor of Liotard’s. In the lower part of the painting he reproduced two torn paper fragments arranged symmetrically, seemingly back-mounted under the reliefs on the same painted wooden board. The paper fragments show detailed sketches that Liotard was in the habit of making on his travels, which correspond to his interest in traditional costumes and hairstyles. They bear the captions “Coiffure Turque” and “Coiffure de Ulm”.
