About this Item

Pierre Lamesangere Engraved by Georges-Jacques Gatine (c.1773-c.1825) after Louis-Marie Lante Costumes des Femmes Paris: 1827 Hand-colored engraving 16 ¾ x 13 ¼ framed These plates show the celebrated women of France in their Royal Court Costumes. One of the many paramours of Louis XIV, King of France. A lady-in-waiting to his sister-in-law the Princess Palatine, she caught the attention of the Sun King and became his lover in 1679. The fontange, a headdress worn by women in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, was named after Mlle de Fontanges. It is said that she tied her hair up with a ribbon after losing her cap while horseback riding. The king liked the look and it soon became fashionable. Bookseller Inventory # G00202c
