c. 1790
Louis-Léopold Boilly (1761-1845)

Today we play "Guess who?" Our portraits have a lot to tell about themselves, but is it enough for you to recognize them?

Does this look like a portrait to you? What's so special about it?

  • The portrait is a caricature of the artist
  • The portrait is a composition of vegetables
  • The portrait is made up of six female bodies
