DELAISTRE, François-Nicolas
(b. 1746, Paris, d. 1832, Paris)

Bust of the Empress Marie-Louise

1813
Terracotta
Musée des Beaux-Arts, Dijon

Delaistre portrait of the Empress is somewhat flattering, he did play down the new Empress's protruding eyes, Habsburg lip and chin by emphasizing the youthful bloom of her twenty years.
