This girl whose name was Geneviève was the niece of Jacques Barcat, daughter of his sister Marguerite. I met her one day during a visit to my grandparent's house in Le Mans. This oil on canvas was painted from a picture taken in Pau in July 1933. I have the picture and I think that the girl is much more beautiful and smiling in the photograph. Curiously, and doing a genealogical search about my grandfather, I got in touch with her daughter and husband. We met in Le Mans, and after at their place. Now we keep a very kind relationship in spite of the distance. You lose the contact with the family until you meet up with it again.
