Camille Louise Merré
Camille Louise grew up in a creative household and inherited her cultural background from her father, awarded from “Les Beaux-Arts du Mans” and ancestors: among them, Fernand Josse, who studied engineering and arts at Centrale in Paris, and Adèle Sophie Lefèbvre, married to the Count & Minister Nicolas Martin du Nord, Commander of the Légion d’Honneur. She was the model for the renowned Geneva artist and sculptor, James Pradier, for the statue representing the city of Lille in 1837, situated on the place of La Concorde in Paris.
