designer loves art...Marguerite Gerard...152

what does one need to become one of the first French female  recognized in the18th  century?

this is Marguerite Gerard 

born in France she was taken in by her sister and her husband Jean-Honore Frangonard who at the time was living in the Louvre in France, who exposed her to many painters and various types of art styles. by the age of  24 she already had a reputation  as a genre painter and the first French woman to be so. she is mostly known for her intimate domestic paintings. her style, based in 17th century Dutch , of accurate details and blended brushstrokes  made her technique  impressive, that combined with her smaller scale paintings  helped her grow in reputation.
