Memoirs of Madame Vigée Lebrun by LE BRUN, Élisabeth Louise Vigée

This memoirs chronicles Madame Vigée Lebrun’s childhood and the early discovery of her talent, the fortuitous break that introduced her to the world of “portraiture of the stars,” her expeditious flight from France at the height of the French Revolution, her continued success as a portraitist for the various royal houses of Europe, and her ultimate return to France. In this memoirs, Lebrun illustrates how she overcame the prejudices of the art world that prescribed how women painters could practice their art form, as well as the subject matter they could paint.
