We do not known if the Maria Josepha of Saxony posed for Frédou personally because the master usually employed an existing portrait as a model. He made several copies of a portrait of her husband by Maurice-Quentin de La Tour, and so he may have followed the same practice here.
When was Louis 16 Death
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered
Hi Priyanshu, Louis XVI was born in Versailles on the 23rd of August in 1754 and died on the 21st of January in 1793. He didn't die so peacefully; he was guillotined in front of an angry mob on the Place de la Révolution in Paris. Kind regards, Tanja
