Marguerite Gérard, L'Elève intéressante de Jean-Honoré Fragonard

The formidable period of emulation and artistic collaboration between Marguerite Gérard and her brother-in-law Jean-Honoré Fragonard is one of the most enigmatic pages in the history of late 18th century art. The two painters, who intertwine their brushes on canvases imagined by one or the other, blur the lines by playing with the conventions of which many women artists were victims. Winner of the 2019 Prix du Livre d'art for her monograph on Marguerite Gérard, Carole Blumenfeld, who has a doctorate in art history and is a former resident of the Académie de France in Rome, is currently in charge of the scientific mission at the Palais Fesch-Musée des Beaux-arts d'Ajaccio and director of the collections of the Musée Jean-Honoré Fragonard-Collection Hélène et Jean-François Costa.
