Berthe Girardet born in Marseille on April 8, 1861, is the daughter of Charles Gustave Imer (1826-1907), a wealthy merchant of Swiss origin based in Marseille, and of Hélène Rogers, daughter of an American merchant based in Naples. She trained in the workshop of Émile Aldebert and exhibited her first works under her young daughter Berthe Imer until her marriage in 1893 with the painter-engraver Paul-Armand Girardet (1859-1915), descendant of a family of Swiss artists, the Girardets, originally from Le Locle.

She is buried in the new cemetery of Neuilly-sur-Seine (Hauts-de-Seine).
