Jean-Marc Nattier - Manon Balletti - National Gallery Cushion
This portrait was probably one exhibited by Nattier at the Salon in 1757.
The sitter (1740 – 1776) was the daughter of an actress in the Comédie Italienne company, and became engaged to Casanova at about the time the portrait was painted. In 1760 she married a more reputable though older suitor, the architect Jacques-François Blondel (1705 – 1774).
In contrast to many of his court portraits, Nattier’s representation of Manon Balletti is remarkable for its apparent simplicity. Liveliness is conveyed by the slight turn of the head and the attraction of the sitter emphasised by the rose pinned to her dress. National Gallery original art cushions are made with a super soft faux suede and machine washable and comes complete with the cushion pad. As with all our products we use archival inks to get the brightest, saturated finish possible these bring life and style to any room setting.
