Victorine Meurent

Victorine Meurent was painter Manet’s favorite model. Like many artists’ models in history, she was also a gifted painter in her own right. Sadly, all of her paintings have been lost, save one. See the link below for a wonderful article I found, which I think sums up so well her personality and life.
