The look of love

If that's how Mrs. Goldbeck gazes at something of which she is fond, I am thankful that I never came within her field of regard!

Not To Be Ambiguous

That dog has a nose just like Mrs. Goldbeck's.

Interesting career

I was intrigued by the photograph and spent a few minutes researching Mrs. Goldbeck online. She went on to have an interesting life: already the young widow of the early abstract artist Walter Goldbeck, she posed nude for Genthe; married again, to the Count Vallombrosa of France; divorced and married again, to Andre Dubonnet, the heir to the Dubonnet family, First World War aviator.

Later she and Andre would be briefly detained in France, accused of collaboration with the Germans during World War 2; eventually she would come back to New York and become involved with the Broadway dramatic community, passing away in 1992.
