Her father dying shortly after she was born in Brittany, Marie Quivoron did not come from a privileged background.  She began painting, largely self-taught, when her mother and stepfather (Pasquiou) moved to Paris. Her earlier work shows the classical influence of Ingres, but by the 1870s, she was an active proponent of impressionism, and she participated in the Impressionist exhibitions of 1879, 1880, and 1886.  In addition, she received recognition as an excellent ceramic artist. The jealousy and disapproval of her impressionistic style by her artist-husband Felix Bracquemond caused her to stop painting around 1890. Many of the best paintings by this reclusive artist were created in her own garden at Sèvres. Her work should rank with Mary Cassatt's and Berthe Morisot's.
