This work was painted in St Petersburg where Vigee Le Brun, a refugee from the French Revolution and famed for her portraits, was working at the imperial court. She created many portraits of members of the imperial family and Russian aristocrats. Here the artist showed herself painting a portrait of Empress Elizaveta Alexeevna, wife of Emperor Alexander I.
