Mme Adelaide (Adelaide-Francoise-Julie) Boilly was born in 1774 and died in 1819, in Paris. She was a youngest daughter of merchant Pierre-Francois Leduc (also Le Duc) and Francoise-.Josephe-Julie Carton. She was also first cousin of dramatist Antoine-Vincent Arnault. Her family lived at No. 398, Rue de Clery, section Bonne-Nouvelle, Paris. On 3rd November 1795 she married (as his second wife) artist Louis-Leopold Boilly. She can't be ident with certain "Mlle (sic!) Caroline Boilly (or Bailly)" whose name one finds in Augustin's list of pupils visiting his studio in 1796.
Moreover, it is not to rule out that this miniature is a self-portrait of the 21-year-old, newlywed Mme Boilly.
