Mme. Marie-Victoire Jaquotot (1772-1855) was one of the leading painter’s in Paris and at the Sèvres manufactory during the directorship of Alexandre Brongniart. A very fine miniaturist and painter, in 1816 she was awarded the title of “Premiere peintre sur porcelaine du Roi”, which enabled her to open her own atelier or painting studio in Paris which she ran from 1816-1836.

Mme. Jaquotot, a friend of Brongniart, often fraternised with other famous artists of the day. These included, Delacroix, de Laroche, Gérard, Isabey and Ingres. (Préaud: p.33 see literature below)
