(c 1850, France)

Madame Favre was the pen-name of a precise (presumed) draughtswoman working in the mid 1800s. The intricate pencil drawings she authored over a two year period were discovered in a spiritualist library in an exercise book entitled simply: The Natural Talent of Mme Favre. The artist’s ethereal figures, with their forlorn features, exotic garb and luxuriant hair-designs, have been the subject of speculation, as this single book is to date the only discovered oeuvre.
