  • Abstract: This article examines the production and reception of botanical illustrations by Madeleine Françoise Basseporte. It presents the relationship between image and artist as a form of visibility-in-invisibility, long thought to conceal a hidden life. Basseporte’s oeuvre attests both to the marginalization of woman illustrators typical of the period and to the vivacity of a woman artist who achieved relative fame under unfavorable conditions.
