“The Burial of Atala” (1808)

“Atala, ou Les Amours de deux sauvages dans le desert” is an early novella by François-René de Chateaubriand, first published on 2 April 1801. The work, inspired by his travels in North America, had an immense impact on early Romanticism, and went through five editions in its first year.

Portrait de Madame Augustine Bertin de Vaux (exh.1809). Anne-Louis Girodet de Roussy-Trioson (French, 1767-1824). Oil on canvas.

Girodet exhibited this portrait in 1809 Salon, along with six other female portraits and that of Chateaubriand. Madame Augustine holds a book in her hand, her place marked with her finger. This evokes the social role of cultured women at the Restoration.
