Laure GOUIN-BRAQUEHAIS (1829-1916), attributed... - Lot 15 - Marie-Saint Germain
Laure GOUIN-BRAQUEHAIS (1829-1916), attributed to. Nude Odalisque, before 1855. Stereoscopic daguerreotype finely enhanced in color, made at her husband's studio, 8.5 x 17 cm. Put under glass by Gouin. This odalisque is most probably Pauline Eléonore Kraft. This young woman presented herself as a florist, a profession very close to prostitution under the Second Empire, when she was arrested for posing for Pierre Louis Courier. In 1863, she spent a month in Saint-Lazare prison. She does not appear to have continued modeling after this date. Provenance: Serge Nazarieff Collection, Geneva. Bibliography: Denis Pellerin, Le Nu stéréoscopique, les modèles et leur histoire, BEA + Polyverlags AG, 2020, pages 68-69. Denis Pellerin, The "Dirty-footed venuses" and their photographs, Tartarin, 2023, page 30.
