Cecilia Beaux post updated
I’ve added biographical information relating to the young girl who sat for the charcoal sketch by Beaux, Ernesta Drinker, that may be of interest. I’ve been meaning to do it for months but kept putting it off. The post has woken up again so I thought I had to do it now.

Jean-Francis Auburtin (1866-1930) - Baigneuses dans les rochers de Belle Île

If you click on the image and then click on it again when it appears (as with all of my posts, it’s big) you will see that these are not bathers, but rather sirens singing, trying to entice weak-minded sailors to approach in the hope that their ships founder on the rocks. Auburtin used models (including, I believe, the Isadorables) to depict nymphs and sirens in many of his artworks.
Oh. It looks like it is only one click with this one, but two clicks with most other images.
