Maurice Quentin de La Tour’s portrait of Élisabeth Ferrand, who died in 1752, reflects the Parisian salon culture at the time of the Enlightenment. The figure portrayed in the painting, obviously engaged in studying Isaac Newton’s theories, was an acquaintance of the philosopher Condillac, among others.
