Editorial Reviews

Review

 “At last, Labille-Guiard receives her fair account in the history of women artists.”—HerStoria Magazine



 “This concise study, written in lucid prose, offers a detailed biography and close analyses of the most important works.”—The Art Book



 “During the Revolution [Labille-Guiard] cast her lot with neither party, which helped her to survive but caused her to fall between the cracks of history.  This book, the first in English on its subject, restores her to her proper place.”—Art & Antiques



 “A beautifully produced monograph. . . . Auricchio guides us securely through current theories and compellingly narrates the political events.”—Apollo

The story of the life of Adelaide Labille-Guiard and the body of work she created is fascinating. The author, Laura Auricchio, did a wonderful job of researching her subject and the times in which Labille-Guiard lived. The writing is excellent and easy to read and understand.

I recommend it highly.

I sculpt miniature dolls so the pictures were more important to me than the text. However the text was quite interesting and the pictures wonderful.
