Memoirs of Madame Vigée Lebrun by Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun (1755 - 1842). Translated by Lionel Strachey (1864 - 1927).



This memoirs chronicles Madame Vigée Lebrun's childhood and the early discovery of her talent, the fortuitous break that introduced her to the world of "portraiture of the stars," her expeditious flight from France at the height of the French Revolution, her continued success as a portraitist for the various royal houses of Europe, and her ultimate return to France. In this memoirs, Lebrun illustrates how she overcame the prejudices of the art world that prescribed how women painters could practice their art form, as well as the subject matter they could paint. ( James K. White.)

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I'll set this up for you.

Edit: Let me know if anything needs fixing. Do you have someone in mind as dpl. If not we could advertise for one.

Hi craigdav1,

I don't have a DPL in mind, so yes please advertise. The writing is very clear and easy to read, so I hope not to make a lot of narration mistakes.

Thanks craigdav1, and thanks for proofing the first section. I do hope someone will be interested in DPLing permanently. From what I have read so far, it's an interesting memoirs, and the author writes in a very modern style.
