Some brief overview of this book

The life of Virginie Gautreau, the notorious beauty of Madame X, John Singer Sargents most famous and scandalous portrait, provides inspiration for this absorbing and intriguing novel. In this novel, Gioia Diliberto tells Virginies story, drawing on the sketchy facts of Virginies life to re-create her tempestuous personality and the captivating milieu of nineteenth-century Paris. Born in New Orleans to two of Louisianas prominent Creole families and raised at Parlange, her grandmothers lush plantation. Virginie fled to France with her mother and sister during the Civil War. The family settled in Paris among other expatriate Southerners and hoped, through their French ancestry, to insinuate themselves into high society. They soon were absorbed into the fascinating and wealthy world of grand ballrooms, dressmakers salons, luxurious country estates, and artists ateliers. Because of Virginies striking appearance and vivid character, her mother pinned the familys hopes for social acceptance on her daughter, who became a professional beauty and married a French banker. Even before Sargent painted her portrait, Virginies reputation for promiscuity and showy self-display made her the subject of vicious Paris gossip. I Am Madame X is a compulsively readable immersion in Belle Epoque Paris. It is also the story of a great work of art, illuminating the struggle between Virginie and Sargent as they fought to control the outcome of a painting that changed their lives and affected the course of art history.

Good To Know

In our interview, Diliberto shared some interesting anecdotes with us: I was one of those dreamy children who spent all of her spare time alone in her room writing stories. My first story — I long ago forgot what it was about — waslantation. Virginie fled to France with her mother and sister during the Civil War. The family settled in Paris among other expatriate Southerners and hoped, through their French ancestry, to insinuate themselves into high society. They soon were absorbed into the fascinating and wealthy world of grand ballrooms, dressmakers salons, luxurious country estates, and artists ateliers. Because of Virginies striking appearance and vivid character, her mother pinned the familys hopes for social acceptance on her daughter, who became a professional beauty and married a French banker. Even before Sargent painted her portrait, Virginies reputation for promiscuity and showy self-display made her the subject of vicious Paris gossip. I Am Madame X is a compulsively readable immersion in Belle Epoque Paris. It is also the story of a great work of art, illuminating the struggle between Virginie and Sargent as they fought to control the outcome of a painting that changed their lives and affected the course of art history.
