French, 1845–1928

Madeleine Lemaire

A pupil of Jeanne Mathilde Herbelin and of Jules Chaplin, Madeleine Jeanne Lemaire, produced paintings and watercolors of flowers that were much admired and held a salon in Paris attended by artists, musicians and writers. She contributed drawings and illustrations to the Gazette des Beaux-Arts and La Vie moderne. A friend of Marcel Proust she illustrated Les Plaisirs et les Jours. She first exhibited at the Salon de Paris in 1864 with a portrait and was given an honourable mention in 1877, and a silver medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle. A member of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts from 1890, she was awarded the Légion d'Honneur in 1906.
