Personal life[ edit ] Sophie de Bouteiller was born in Paris on June 16,to the Comte de Bouteiller and his wife.
Her father was an amateur musician and her mother an accomplished singer. For this reason, the Countess encouraged Sophie to pursue an education in the arts from a young age: InSophie decided to pursue more serious study in drawing by becoming a pupil of Monsieur Emile Perrinwho later became the director of Theater-Francais.
Here she had the opportunity to study from live models, gaining indispensable knowledge on the depiction of body proportions and movements. Furthermore, by distancing herself from her artistic career, Browne wished to preserve her social standing, as it was not deemed appropriate at the time for a lady to also be a professional artist.

These voyages proved to be vital to her artistic formation, exposing Browne to new environments. The trip to Constantinople was of particular importance, as it was during this trip that she visited a Turkish harem, gaining firsthand experience on what this private space was truly like. It is believed that this experience contributed to the unique manner in which she would later portray the Orient in her paintings and engravings.
Henriette Browne had a successful career as an artist and although many of her works are untraced, the surviving works in private collections testify to her popularity. Today, her paintings offer an intervention into the type of 19th century Orientalism that largely catered to and reaffirmed the status of the dominating male gaze.
Their scale, realism, and frontal figure presentation were unusual characteristics for the time. She exhibited Lecture de la Bible, a painting of an old woman reading a heavy Bible on her lap.
She received moderate success and drew the attention of an art critic who was well known in both French and English art circles. After striking up a rapport with Browne, he was invited to her studio to view more of her work. The visitor was immediately able to discern that her Parisian studio was adorned with a level of taste and luxury that did not equate to the sale of her artworks, which at that time were selling for around francs.
After witnessing her skill, the collector decided to purchase the works he has previously discussed as well as the promise to purchase more works in the future. He then submitted these works and others to future Salons which accrued around 7, francs.
Empress Eugenie bought her work Les Puritaines for 6, francs from her five exhibited paintings in Charles Kingsley described the painting as a perfect combination of realism and naturalism.
Also inan exhibition of her work was held at the French Gallery in Pall Mall. Her early works often contained themes of pathos and sentiment. There were three other key characteristics to her paintings.
First, her paintings were often extremely large for genre scenes and her figures were placed toward the front of the picture.
Second, certain aspects recalled elements of Dutch art from the 17th century.
These aspects included her division of the receding plane and the centralization of light in her interiors. Lastly, her work contained realism. While her paintings were creations of her mind, all the elements and details were borrowed from real life. Une Visite and Une Joueuse de Flute.
In these images, women greet visitors and listen to music. They are shown performing everyday activities as opposed to being undressed, smoking, or catering to men. After these paintings, Browne turned her attention largely to the subjects of schools and children, in the Orientalist fashion.
Representations of the Eastern harem by male artists were largely based on fantasy as men could not enter these womanly spaces, therefore their sexuality was exaggerated to conform to male fantasies.
She does not objectify the women, but rather presents a calm and controlled domestic space, excluded men from the scenes, and painted with a more subdued color palette Inge A Girl Writing.
