Portrait of Marguerite Carbois, bust-length, in profile to the left Charles-André Vanloo, called Carle Vanloo (Nice 1705-1765 Paris), Portrait of Marguerite Carbois, bust-length, in profile to the left signed 'Carle Vanloo' and with inscription 'Marguerite Carbois' red chalk, in an inscribed circle, watermark proprietary. Drawing size: 10 x 9½ in. (253 x 243 mm.). Now in a good modern Louis XVI gilt frame. Provenance: Spink-Leger, Bond Street, Private collection.

Van Loo was born in Nice and followed his brother Jean-Baptiste to Turin, and then to Rome in 1712, where he studied under Benedetto Luti and the sculptor Pierre Legros. After leaving Italy in 1723, he worked in Paris, and received the first prize for historical painting in 1727—as did his future rival François Boucher. In 1734 he settled in Paris, and in 1735 became a member of the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture and rose rapidly in the hierarchy of the academy. He was decorated with the Order of Saint Michael and named First Painter to king Louis XV of France in 1762. He died in Paris on 15 July 1765.
