Mlle Marie Gabrielle Capet (1761 Lyon - 1818 Paris) grew up in a very humble family, her father being a servant. About 1781 she went to Paris, where she joined the studio of Mme Labille-Guiard, and soon became the latter's friend, assistant and best friend. She exhibited from 1781 to 1785 at the Exposition de la Jeunesse, Place Dauphine, where her talent was soon noticed; in 1785 and 1786 - at the Salon de la Correspondance and, from 1791 to 1814 - at the Salon de Paris. It is only from 1791 that she exhibited miniatures besides pastels and oil portraits, although she had already painted sometime before that date. She did portraits of Mme Elisabeth de France, of Houdon, Mme Labille-Guiard, Suvée, Vincent.
