The Duke of Orleans, brother of King Louis XIV, with 'eyes like blackcurrants' as Nancy Mitford recounts in 'The Sun King', was notorious for his clothes, parties and male lovers. He also had two wives, a mistress and fathered eleven legitimate children, amongst whom Marie-Antoinette and Napoleon's son are descended.
About the artist
Michaela Gall studied at Chelsea School of Art and L’Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris. She works on paper and in ceramic. Her work is produced under the umbrella of Majolica, a form of ceramics originated in Renaissance Italy which uses tin-glazes painted over an opaque white background glaze, with an earthenware body. Michaela creates pieces that are painted within the tradition of Folk Art, documenting various subjects such as historical events, patterns, symbols and people from different cultures. Her celebrated Painted Portrait series explores various cultural figures throughout history from Queen Elizabeth I to Jimi Hendrix.
