Victorine Visuals

Here’s a photo album, if you will, of many of the portraits and paintings painted of Victorine Meurent. Altogether, there are over 30 known paintings of her. I couldn’t cover all of them in my novel, but am adding many of them here in case you’d like to see them.

The slideshow below shows the paintings we know Manet used Victorine for. There are a few others where he may or may not have used her, but these are in my novel.

Dates and titles:

  1. Portrait of Victorine Meurent, 1862
  2. Street Singer, 1862
  3. Mlle. Victorine in the Costume of an Espada, 1862
  4. The Picnic, 1862
