La Gazette Drouot have published an extended article on a very interesting Self Portrait by Marie-Gabrielle Capet (1761-1818) which is coming up for sale in Nice next week. Capet, who was a pupil of Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, came from a modest background and eventually exhibited widely in pre and post revolutionary France. The painting, which is a recent rediscovery, relates to a much larger variant now in the Neue Pinakothek, Munich. It will be offered on 15th February 2024 carrying and estimate of  €15,000 -  €20,000.

Update - The painting realised €310,000!
