This is a fabulous post! Thank you for the information! What a character!
The Marchesa Casati painting by Augustus John is one of my favourites, too. Before the AGO closed for the transformation, they exhibited a set of paintings chosen by patrons. The Marchesa was there. John Polyani commented that the Marchesa reminded him of his wife, Brenda Bury, a well-known Toronto artist. Thanks for sharing this post with us - I had no idea she was painted by others and she certainly has an interesting history.
Wow! This is a perfect example of a beautiful woman in a beautiful hat..Thank you..Penney
Those little "robots" are busy beavers, aren't they?Kat
I love this painting by Giovanni Boldini and didn't even know it was La Marquise Casati... but now seeing the eyes, yes, of course, I should have realised she was that very same woman photographed by Man Ray!
