Jacqueline Comerre-Paton (1859-1897)
A figure almost worthy of an old master in sentiment and dignified simplicity of treatment is
the "Magdalene" of Mme. Jacqueline Comerre-Paton.
Mme. Paton, who was born in Paris and ws a pupil of Cabanel, is the wife of the eminent artist Leon Comerre, and has
gained much favor by her work in portraiture and her pictures of sentiment and feeling, like the
one we give herewith.
