Madame Adelaide

An elegant arrangement to go with and elegant painting. The painting is titled “Madame Adelaide” by Adelaide Labille-Guiard. Labille-Guiard was born in 1749 in Paris and was a feminist of her time helping several female artists get admitted into the Royal Academy. Her most famous painting is “Self Portrait with Two Pupils” which hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The floral arrangement is by Kathy Cheathem, Cathie Wong, and Maggie Moran from the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center. It took three designers to put together this huge arrangement.
