During a recent trip to the Met (thanks to Susan & VVE!), we wandered through the European portrait gallery and found so much colour inspiration there.

Adélaïde Labille-Guiard was a French miniaturist who lived from 1749 to 1803. She was made a member of the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture in 1783 along with three other women, which created a stir among the male members, divorced her first husband in 1793, got "artist's lodgings" in the Louvre (imagine!) and then married her painting teacher, François-André Vincent. All the while somehow supporting the Revolution but accepting commissions from the royal family.....
A film script waiting to be written, I think.
