Luce Center Label

Clémentine Dalcour (1855-1942) was born in Cuba and moved to Ellicott City, Maryland, with her family in the late nineteenth century. She eventually moved to Philadelphia on her own, where she taught French at the Philadelphia High School for Girls. Correspondence with Clémentine's family reveals that her fiancé passed away around the time this miniature was painted, and it is likely he for whom she mourns. Clémentine is buried in Cecil County, Maryland.
