  1. Oh my - and here I am thinking it was John Sargent who painted all those wonderful portraits! And it was really her all along....

    I assume John wasn't allowed to develop his talent and had to be content modeling for her.

    When she took away all of his formal clothes and had them adjusted - well, not much for him to do but learn to cook and clean!
