Portrait of Marc de Villiers by Jacques Aved (1747)
This portrait of Marc de Villiers is currently held at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. French painter and Rococo portraitist Jacques Aved painted this portrait in 1747. As a Rococo enthusiast, his art combines ornamental and theatrical styles of art.
The subject of his art is a high government official under Louis XV. In a poised position, de Villiers leans towards his spectators.
The recreation of the right is a parody of the painting and of the events taking place nearly 300 years later. She wears a bandana as a mask, latex gloves, Windex in one hand, and toilet paper rolls replace a Quaker wig.
