Painter. Born Switzerland. Arrived in London in 1766 and was quickly successful. Lived in Golden Square with her father. One of only two women amongst the founders of the Royal Academy of Arts. Married in 1781, but retained her own name and via a contract she kept control of her own considerable wealth, and she continued her career - all very rare at the time. A few days after the marriage the couple and the wife's father moved to Rome where she remained for the rest of her life and where she died. Our picture is a self-portrait.
