This new perfume is inspired by the famous oil painting Portrait of Madam Sériziat, and was painted by Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825), one of the most famous contemporary French artist.
Jacques-Louis David painted many political oil paintings with during the French Revolution, and was imprisoned in prison during the French Terror. His wife divorced him because he voted against the king at the time, and later in 1796 she remarried him. After being released in 1794, Jacques-Louis David applied to meet with his ex-wife’s sister and brother-in-law Pierre Sériziat. The ex-wife’s sister Sériziat and his brother-in-law each painted a sketch portrait to commemorate the painter David and their sincere friendship.
Mrs. Sériziat, who was sitting, held the bouquet in one hand and the baby in the other. In the painting, Mrs. Sériziat and the child look natural. The green ribbon on the lady’s hat accompanies the belt, and the simple background sets off the figure before the scene. The blood vessels on the back of Mrs. Sériziat’s right hand are clearly visible. This hand is tender, plump and shows her identity and class status. The colour used is mainly white, with emerald green, coral red and yellow elements for the background, the tone is harmonious and unified, and the painting is pure and beautiful. In this portrait, the painter Jacques-Louis David pays more attention to the depiction of personality and emotion, making the characters in the painting look natural and true.
