On May 31, 1793 The Queens protegee was received into the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture. That same year she exhibited for the first time in the Salon. She then presented a new portrait of the queen wearing a blouse dress. This dress was the queen's favorite during her stays at the Petit Trianon. The visitors of the Salon were extremely shocked because the outfit wasn't befitting for her ranking. She then quickly made a new portrait of the queen in the same position, but in a blue-grey silk dress, showing Marie-Antoinette's constant support for the silk-weavers of Lyon. This portrait became a big success and was replicated many times, with one in Versailles.
