Marie-Theodore Thérèse Ruggieri, was known as Mlle. Colombe being employed by the Comedie Italienne at an earlier time than her older sister. Marie-Catherine (1751-1830), Marie-Thérèse (1754-1837) and Marie-Madeleine Riggieri (1760-1841), known as Adeline, were among the most celebrated demi-mondaines of their era. Under the stage name 'Colombe', the beautiful (and notorious) Venetian-born actresses made a sensation in late eighteenth-century Paris. Jean Baptiste Patas french printmaker 1748 - 1817 may also be Charles Emmanuel Patas. This prints may be based on a composition by Fragonard who painted the famous actresses.
