I m a big fan of Elisabeth Vigee Lebrun but this biography is a terrible representation of her life The author not only continually repeats information but she does so using the same phrases over over again She is constantly referring to Vigee Lebrun s Souvenirs so in a sense the book is written about Souvenirs rather than Vigee Lebrun herself The author also contradicts herself On one page she claims Vigee Lebrun was surprised by the events of 1789 but on the very next pages she says that Vigee Lebrun was depressed because she knew what was coming This makes no sense Worst of all important information is left out For example the author states that Vigee Lebrun her daughter emigrate from France but it doesn t give a date I guess the reader is supposed to stop what they are doing research information that the author should ve provided in the book thus eliminating any reason to read it in the 1st place
