||Madame Thoret, Carolus Duran and Henner
Mlle. Marie Rose Vasselon, who was born at Craponne in the Department of
the Upper Loire, exhibited in earliest childhood a most astonishing artistic talent.
She seemed to learn to draw by instinct, for she had enjoyed no instruction apart from that which
was afforded by the pictures and engravings in her home. A
Madame Thoret, a very able woman painter of the time, gave her her first actual instruction in
art. She then went to Paris, where, while studying in the art school, she also became a student
under Carolus Duran and Henner. Her first successes were made in portraiture, but, strongly
influenced by Henner, she commenced to make a specialty of the study of the nude, of which "The Bath" is a convincing example. Miss Vasselon shows in her pictures
a wonderfully fine appreciation of color, and great accuracy and skill in drawing. Her
technique is big, broad, and free, and her execution perfect.
