One can read in the newspapers of the time "She has already obtained many awards and the last appreciation of Benjamin Constant the "new master" is not among the least, on the contrary".
From the portrait she made of Benjamin-Constant, bought by the State during Miss Delasalle's lifetime and hung in the Musée du Luxembourg, the painter would have said "That's how I understand myself (...) yes it's me and that's how I would like to pass on to posterity".
From 1903, she took part in the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts and was a founding member of the Salon d'Automne. Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1926.
Angèle Delasalle, loves the great masters and is inspired by them, just as she was inspired by the impressionists of her time.
She likes the light and dark, the vaporous atmospheres, to which she brings touches of luminosity.
