1225) Carmen Gaudin

Carmen Gaudin. French prostitute who modeled for Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 – 1901), including some of his most famous paintings. Lautrec met Gaudin in 1884 when he spied her and her brilliant red hair while dining in Montmartre with Henri Rachou, his friend and fellow student at Cormon’s atelier. Until the late 1880s Carmen was to sit for Lautrec for at least 13 paintings, as well as some drawings.
