Scheffer frequently portrayed his favorite pupil, the Princess Marie d'Orléans (1813-1839), daughter of King Louis Philippe and a prominent sculptor. As proof of her dedication and talent, she wears an artist's smock and holds a chisel. Seen nearby are several of her works, including her model of her most famous sculpture, a stoic depiction of Joan of Arc.
