Update on Louise Cahen d’Anvers

L Cahen d'Anvers, by Bonnat, Courtesy

So, thanks to a follower, I can now include a portrait of Louise Cahen d’Anvers, one possible model for Mme Swann (oh, Odette, you look very sweet here).

I have a bit of time now and hope to catch up on some missing posts. I know it’s cheating (but only a little bit) to back-date the posts, but I really want to have one for every Friday. So, onward and upward.

If you’re reading these in calendar order, you’ll get to this post after the March ones, all of which were put up after this one!

Confused yet?


  1. It is Bonnat, not Bonnet

  2. Try

    Champs sur Marne comtesse Louis Cahen d’Anvers

    in Google Images.


  3. Are you reading THE HARE WITH AMBER EYES? Mme. Cahen d’Anvers figures in it as a lover of Charles Ephrussi—possibly the original of Swann.
