Biography: Caroline Burnett was born in the United States (place unknown). She was in Paris in the early part of her career, which was 19th and early 20th century. She was a member of the Societe des Beaux-Arts in Paris and exhibited with the Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1898. This society was founded in the 1880s as a rival to the well-established group sponsoring the 'official' Salon. The SNBA held their exhibitions at the Palais des Beaux Arts on the Champs-de-Mars.
