Marguérite  1868

by Jan Toorop

This woman, whose face is partially hidden by stylized white cyclamen, was long identified as Marguérite Helfrich. The facial features, however, differ from those in other prints and drawings of her. The sitter could also be Marguérite Hallmann. Toorop met her in Brussels while visiting one of the salons held by the Art Nouveau artists’ group La Libre Esthétique.
