MIA in Detail: Clue 3

Posted on by Minneapolis Institute of Arts


Among the abundance of still-life painters in the 19th-century, this artist of German descent was among the most renowned. This painting is one of six large-scale canvases attributed to the artist.

Can you guess who painted this glass?


Last week’s clue: This person moved in the intellectual, artistic, and political circles of late 18th-century Paris, even holding her own Salons – perhaps she played the Spanish guitar for her guests?

Can you guess who this person is?











Answer: The Spanish guitar belongs to the lovely Comtesse Septimanie d’Egmont Pignatelli, painted in The Comtesse d’Egmont Pignatelli in Spanish Costume by Alexander Roslin in 1763.
