THE FABULOUS GERANIUMS
THROUGH THE EYES OF DEGAS’ IMPRESSIONIST FRIEND
Such geraniums! It does not become us poor mortals to be vain—but really, my geraniums!
Mary Russell Mitford, Our Village
I wish I could discover the location of Geraniums by French Impressionist artist Henri Rouart (1833-1912), who was also a friend, patron, and sometime model of Edgar Degas (1834-1917). In Our Village, British author Mary Russell Mitford (1787-1855) recreates the daily life and surroundings of her home in Berkshire, England.
