Lucas-Robiquet was recognized for her paintings of African and Algerian subjects. The 1897 edition of Parisian Illustrated Review cites her outdoor studies for a "wise tendency toward reasonable impressionism" by "an artist of the highest order."
Works by Lucas-Robiquet have sold well in the past few years. In the early 21st century, Christie's house sold, at public auction, two of her paintings in the $13,000 to $18,000 range. Another work, Portrait of a boy on a beach, was offered in the $30,000 to $50,000 range by Christie's. Yet another work, Tahedat filant, earned $141,033, far above the auctioneer's estimate, although that was at the height of the market in 2008, before the world-wide recession hit the market for fine art very hard. Several of her Salon paintings were also exhibited recently by Milmo-Penny Fine Art for private sale.
Since 2007, art historian Mary Healy from the Department of History at the University of Limerick, Ireland, has dedicated her research to the life and oeuvre of Lucas-Robiquet. Healy’s work, which is based on primary source documentation, is entitled ‘Women Orientalist Artist-Explorers of 19th Century France: uncovering the life narrative, artistic career and oeuvre of Marie Elisabeth Aimée Lucas-Robiquet (1858-1959)’.
