Louise Abbema


French Painter, engraver and sculptor, Louise Abbema was born in Étampes on October 30, 1853 where her father, Viscount Abbema, was then station master. A unique and pampered girl, if not adored by her parents, very early on drawing, Louise was very young at the school of Charles Chaplin (1825-1891), Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905) and Carolus- Duran (1837-1917). There is online, as well as in this Corpus, a game of croquet, which she painted at the age of 19 years.
