This portrait was painted for and under the immediate inspection of the Queen Marie Antoinette, in her apartment of the Petit Trianon, near Versailles. At the time of the pillage of the Royal Palaces, during the Revolution in 1792-3, it was confiscated to the care of one of the Queen's attendants, of whom it was afterwards purchased by Dr. Swediaur, in Paris, who had been an intimate friend of Dr. Franklin. At his death, in 1825, it became the property of the Rev. Edward Forster, of whose widow it was purchased by its present owner. [P. 5.]
