The Hangover, c. 1888


As painter and lover, model, muse and confidante Suzanne Valadon was a key figure in the fabled, febrile Parisian art-world of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The 150th anniversary of her birth seems to me to deserve far more attention and commemoration than it seems to be receiving today. I shall try, in my small way, to do something to amend that over the next days and weeks.

Marie-Clémentine Valadon, known as Suzanne Valadon
23 September 1865 – 7 April 1938
