Podcast Episode 55: Adélaïde Labille-Guiard


Welcome back to Accessible Art History: The Podcast! In this week's episode, I'm discussing a female artist who's name has been left out of the history books. Adélaïde Labille-Guiard was a talented portraitist who fought for women's rights in the artistic space of Revolutionary France.


One of my key research sources was the book Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (in That Order) by Bridget Quinn. I highly recommend this book if you are an art history enthusiast.
