- From "Galerie des Contemporaines, ou Collection de portraits des femmes qui se sont rendues célèbres depuis la fin du XVIIIe en France et dans les pays étrangers", a series of lithographed portraits accompanied by biographical notes published in seven "livraisons" between 1824-29. The series was never completed.
This print was advertised in "Journal général d'annonce des oeuvres de musique, gravures, lithographies.." on 8 April 1825 as part of the second "livraison" of the series which consisted of 10 pages of text and four portraits (Maria theresa of Austria by Maurin, the Dauphine by Isabey, the Duchess of Berry by Maurin, and Charlotte Princess of Wales by Maurin). See De Vinck for complete announcement, including prices.
