“Self-Portrait with Two Pupils (Marie Gabrielle Capet and Marie Marguerite Carreaux de Rosemond)”

by French artist Adélaïde Labille-Guiard (1749–1803) in 1785.

The painting is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York collection which has a fabulous online essay about the artist by Katharine Baetjer who notes:

The most important work by Adélaïde Labille-Guiard is her Self-Portrait with Two Pupils. Signed and dated 1785 and exhibited in the Salon of the same year, this lifesize, full-length portrait of a modern woman seated before her easel teaching younger women to paint by her example is a bold statement. 

All welcome!
