Mme Magdeleine-Pauline Augustin, nee Ducruet was born in Paris in 1781 and died in Arras in 1865. She was a daughter of Germain Ducruet (Du Cruet), one of the King's numerous secretaries. She became Augustin's pupil and consequently married him at Fussyny - a place, where her family owned property. She debuted at the Salon of 1822 with miniature portraits of her husband, the painters Blondel and Abel de Pujol and of a Captain of the Guard. Two years later, at the Salon of 1824, she showed another portrait of Abel de Pujol, as well as a portrait of Lambert Massard. This time she earned the medal of the 2nd class for her effort. She took part in Salon exhibitions in the following years (1827, 1831, 1834, 1835 and 1838). It appears that around the time of her last participation at the Salon she retired to Arras, where she passed away in 1865.
