Madame Recamier (1777-1849) was celebrated in French Empire society for her beauty and love affairs. At the age of 15 she was married to
a wealthy lawyer who may have been her natural father. The marriage was loveless and unconsummated, and she carried on many flagrant
affairs. In her Parisian town house she held a fashionable literary salon. Some of the most accomplished portraitists of the time sculpted, drew
and painted her image.
and a little something to brighten the post.
What is up with those Egyptians? They did some of the most amazingly beautiful work in metal.
Gold +lapis lazuli turns me on.
