LABILLE-GUIARD Adelaide (b. 1749, Paris, d. 1803, Paris) Nationality : French

French painter. She was a painter of the French nobility before the Revolution and survived to paint the citizens of the Directory. Emerging from the 18th-century tradition of powdered wigs and shimmering satins, she captured informal moments in the lives of her subjects, frequently depicting them interrupted from some pastime. In forging a successful career as a portraitist, Adelaide Labille-Guiard had to overcome an unwelcoming male-dominated art world. Labille-Guiard was often described as a bitter rival of the best-known woman painter of the time, Elisabeth Louise Vigee-Lebrun, but this rivalry was in fact the invention of male artists and critics threatened by their female competitors.
