Language Lessons  featured the seated character of Marie Antoinette, surrounded by landscape elements and an oversized portrait frame, attempting to repeat the French phrases from an instructional audio recording intended to teach English to native French speakers. This work referenced the conventions of portraiture, landscape painting, artistic display and artistic education as well as the Francophilia of the academic tradition.
