This portrait of Madame de Vermenoux (1739-1789) was part of three figures by Liotard made during her stay in Geneva between 1758 et 1764. With frail health, the young widow of a Parisian banker, studied at the Academy of Geneva, comes to town to consult a doctor Theodore Tronchin. As Madame La Live d'Epinay, whose portrait Liotard has done in 1759, she often visited the enlightened circles in the city.
