Portrait of Ludwika Zabelska
Information about author
«Ludwika Zabielska of Marchocki family (c. 1760 – after 1790) – daughter of Michal Marchocki and Kateryna Marchocka of Michalowski; c. 1780 wife of Piotr Zabelski, a member of the Galicia Sejm. The painting shows a half-length image of a young beautiful woman in a graceful pose and an exquisite blue dress with a large square neckline. A red rose in the centre of the dress dominates the pastel tonality of the portrait. The face is drawn cleverly: with rosy cheeks and a sharp chin, small lively eyes, and clear eyebrow lines. Her hair, neatly arranged in a lush hairstyle with curls falling to her shoulders, adorned with ostrich feathers and flowers. On the back of the portrait is the inscription: «Ludwika Zabielskiego siostra mey matki zona Piotra Zabielskiego».
