Adélaïde Victoire Hall, called Adèle (11 May 1772 in Paris – 14 October 1844 in Paris), was a Swedish-French artist and noble (marquise). She was given the honorary title of agré of the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts (1793).

Hall was the daughter of the Swedish artist painter of the royal French court Peter Adolf Hall and Marie-Adélaïde Gobin. She was married in 1792 to the lawyer of the royal council, Francois Louis Seleau, who was murdered during the September Massacres the same year, and to the officer Blaise Lievre de la Grange, marquess de Fourilles in 1796.

Her self-portrait in oil was shown to the Royal Academy of Arts in Stockholm in 1791. She was furthermore represented with her work at the art exhibitions of the academy in 1792 and 1793. She was also a miniaturist and painted on wood and porcelain cups.

Her self-portrait is kept at the Nationalmuseum in Sweden.
