About the event

Art with Friends invites you to a complimentary and inspiring event to celebrate the launch of Bridget Quinn's new book, Portrait of a Woman: Art, Rivalry & Revolution in the Life of Adélaïde Labille-Guiard. Hosted by Lauren Jimerson, this engaging session will delve into the remarkable life of Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, an 18th-century artist who broke gender barriers in the art world of pre-revolutionary France.

Discover the challenges and achievements of Labille-Guiard, from her role as a royal portraitist to her impact as a mentor for emerging women artists. Bridget Quinn, celebrated for her insightful and accessible approach to art history, will guide us through Labille-Guiard's journey against the backdrop of the French Revolution, highlighting her significant yet often overlooked contributions to art and feminism.

This event is designed for anyone interested in the intersection of art, history, and women's roles in shaping cultural landscapes. It's an opportunity to celebrate the launch of a significant book and gain new insights into the life of a pioneering woman artist. Join us for an informative and engaging evening that brings historical narratives to the forefront of today's discussions on art and gender.
