Portrait of Quentin De La Tour by Jean-Baptiste Perroneau

This is the portrait made by Jean-Baptiste Perronneau that he exhibited in the Salon 1750. Perronneau exhibited his pastel portrait of Maurice-Quentin de la Tour, but found to his dismay that La Tour was exhibiting his own self portrait, perhaps a malicious confrontation to demonstrate his superiority in pastel technique.
