On view

Marie-Geneviève Bouliar studied with portrait painter Joseph-Siffred Duplessis and was one of a small group of women artists who exhibited at the Paris Salon during the period after the French Revolution. Her portraits communicate a warm, human sympathy for the subject and are generally informal in spirit and simple in presentation.
