Marie Anne Thoret was born in Quebec, Canada. She lived most of her life in New York, but in 1827 moved with her husband to Newark, New Jersey, where she died eight years later. This miniature, which was originally used to decorate the cover of a tortoiseshell snuffbox, was a gift to the Society from her great-granddaughter.
