Paul-César Helleu was a French painter and engraver, born in Vannes on 17 December 1859, and died in Paris on 23 March 19271.
He inspired the character of Elstir, the painter, in Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time.
Lucie Faure-Goyau, born in 1866 in Amboise and died on 22 June 1913 in Paris, was French woman of letters.
She was the daughter of the President of the Republic, Felix Faure.
She and her sister, Antoinette were childhood friends of Marcel Proust; there was even talk of a marriage between Lucie and Marcel, but the scandal caused by Félix Faure’s death prevented this from happenening.
