Evening drawing school, Boston - the unknown woman of the Seine - 1892

L'Inconnue de la Seine (French for "the unknown woman of the Seine") was an unidentified 
young woman whose putative death mask became a popular fixture on the walls of artists' 
homes after 1900. Her visage inspired numerous literary works. In the United States, 
the mask is also known as "La Belle Italienne".
