portrait of louise elisabeth

Adélaïde Labille-Guiard (1749-1803) was known  for her portraits at a young age, and she became a member of the French Royal Academy. She worked for numerous royal and aristocratic patrons. In 1783 she was admitted to the Academy and was awarded the title Peintre des Mesdames (painter to the king’s aunts), a government pension, and an apartment at the Louvre.
