Comte Arnauld Doria’s account of Gabrielle Capet’s life and work remains a point of reference in the study of Capet, a student of the artist Adélaïde Labille-Guiard’s and a sought-after artist during the French Consulate and Empire periods. Gabrielle Capet (1761–1818) left a vivid collection of portraits, 135 of which are presented in this catalogue.
