1209) Marguerite Khnopff

Marguerite Khnopff. Sister and model of Belgian painter Fernand Khnopff (1585 - 1921). She modeled, among others, for paintings such as I Lock the Door Upon Myself, The Caress, Who Shall Deliver Me?

- "In 1891, the Belgian symbolist Fernand Khnopff debuted I Lock the Door Upon Myself, featuring his red haired sister as model and proxy."

- "In his case, however, the paintings of the auburn-haired Marguerite amounted to a near-obsession..."
