DUVALL Fanny Eliza (2)

Fanny Eliza Duvall was an American painter who came to Paris aged 47 to study at the "James Abbott Mac Neill Wistler School of  Art" shortly before WW1.
 
She made the choice to stay in Paris during the war to continue studing the pastel technique.
 
Under the influence of Stefania Lazarska's AAP, she started the making of cloth dolls from 1915 to 1918.
Her dolls have glass eyes and a smiling look, and are marked "Fannie Duvall Paris" on one of the thigh. One of them was a little girl named "Clarabel" which was exposed at the Art Décoratifs in 1915.
